config: Introduce the concept of an "ungettable" variable.

We had though to make all obsolete and invisible variables
ungettable, so that GETCONF would reject them.  But it turns out
that this isn't the current behavior of GETCONF with those
variables.  So for now, I'm leaving the current behavior unchanged.
(See ticket 31647 for a proposal to change the behavior.)
