Default Can't change web.config while running?

When I try to change appsettings in web.config VS 2013 says:

Saving the file "web.config" requires you to stop your debug session. Would you like to stop debugging now?

Well, no, I would not like to stop debugging. Restarting this program and drilling down to the place where this change should be visible is a PITA!

I was able to change web.config in previous versions of VS while running. I don't understand why changing appsettings should require recompilation; they're explicitly read when consumed.

Can anybody explain why this has changed? Is there some VS option I can change to restore that functionality? Need I implement the INI file that web.config was supposed to eliminate? Thanks, MS!
