Sorry. What I mean is that the SiteConfig and VendorConfig directives should end up in
Jifty::Config and shouldn't need to be written into config.yml.  (We do
this with a few other rules too).

Basically, adding them to config.yml by default adds clutter to the
configuration file for something that you should almost never want to
change. But it's possible have Jifty::Config mix the directives in at
