Unfortunately, not too well. Patches accepted. The only documentation
for that feature are the few lines of comment preceding it.

split-config? non-split config? Or something hand-written? Sometimes
it's a disadvantage to be -that- flexible.

I think, that 1-3, 6 will help you. I don't know whether it'll be

options, and you do not need to read an alphabetically sorted list of
all available options from beginning to end.
