Why would you like it to be a special case? If you ask me, it just
complicates things. All options can be completely overridden, but not
this single one. This one is an exception, and it is inclusive.

Would things be simpler if everything gets overridden? Including
always_cc. I'd just add all the recipients explicitly in the project.
Yes, there may be duplication across projects, but the benefit is that
things are clear and consistent.

After all, the .ini file is a very trivial format, and I'd use it also
in a trivial way...

What do you think?

Best Regards,
