Yes, the error message is important - version 0.6.5 of DELI was bad at
reporting errors if it couldn't find the config file and would just sit
there crippled. The new one, 0.9.1. should spit out a stack trace to the
console if it fails at config. I think this is better?

No, you're right, it makes no sense. So I guess take it out?
