Hi Chris,

For booleans, you can use any of:

    no, yes, n, y, false, true, 0, 1, off, on

For quad-options, it's just:

    no, yes, ask-no, ask-yes

For both, the case is ignored.

Quoting values isn't required for bools or quads because the values
don't contain whitespace or special characters.

Each config type is managed by a separate source file:


There are functions in each for setting, resetting, validating, etc.
