This is what I tried and failed because I did not realize that it is
not enough to just remove the comment char from the template config
file to activate a value line, one must remove everything before the
identifier. It must start at column 1...

So here the leading whitespace on continuation lines is 4 characters
wide. It seems like the requirement is one or more leading spaces for
a line to be recognized as a continuation.
The example uses 4 space characters but afaict this example is legal
(4, 2, 3 whitespace chars and a comment line):

global-ignores = pop1 pop2
foo1 foo2
bar1 bar2
# Added these values too:
   chuck1 chuck2
