What isn't noted there is that we're still parsing the old format in
some cases, see f9dbb64fad (config: parse more robust format in
GIT_CONFIG_PARAMETERS, 2021-01-12).

But I suspect you mean that you have your own parser that expects the
old format only, I didn't find which way it was by grepping
git-cinnabar's sources.
