Comment (by nickm):

 Right.  It's not clear to me that the GETCONF behavior is even _wrong_
 here: the setting is in fact "auto", not something else.  Some kind of
 standard GETINFO mapping for the as-used value of these options might be

 e.g., I'm thinking of something like:

 GETCONF UseMicrodescriptors
 250 UseMicrodescriptors=auto
 GETINFO config/as-used/UseMicrodescriptors
 250 OK

 (but I'm not at all attached to the "as-used" name)
