Configuration file parsing is not strict
I was trying to debug a problem with auth with cactus, and we discovered that the problem was that I had put 'plain' where I should have put 'basic' in the method (DUH) - however, this made me think:
"why didn't lighty bitch loudly that 'plain' is not a known or valid option for 'method'?"
so here's this ticket:
I think all values in the configuration file should be checked against what the system expects, and logged in the error log. It would solve virtually all of my problems.
