FWIW, I don't think that concern was ever an impediment to fixing this
bug: it had already always been the case that brokenness in the system
wgetrc would be unrecoverable. The only thing this bugfix addresses is
the fact that, even though the error is unrecoverable, wget still reads
and parses the user's config file, despite the fact that it already
knows it's going to fail.
