This fails to address the fundamental flaw. You can still end up with a
configuration change meant to be saved, and one not - at least onto the
same configuration setting.

IMHO, we should be able to set _and_get_[1] either:
- the saved and current configuration (to the same new value),
- or only the current configuration.

And then, there's the persistent lack of clear policy for using config_* vs
