Which is exactly what is being requested, and I agree that it would be helpful
to have this option.  If I've mis-typed a class name or two in my configuration
file, I'd want to be able to find out when my app first loads, instead of
having to wait until the first attempt to materialize an instance of that
particular service.  In a webapp environment, for example, I'd want to do this
in the contextInitialized() method of a ServletContextListener, and never put
the app into service if it has configuration problems.
