Worry about that seems a bit like a micro-optimization to me, but I
somewhat see your point.

Yes, that's true.

I'd expect that each pin_config_param has exactly one single value
associated with it. Hence, having Schmitt and debounce as the values
rather than the parameters does make them mutually exclusive.
