  The server enforces sanity on what it needs.  What it doesn't need
it ignores.

  Uh... OK.

  The real answer, though, is that the configuration files are
interpreted *after* they're read.  So doing what you suggest would
mean having the second pass over the configuration files set flags on
what was used, and adding a *third* pass that would print out
configuration items that weren't flagged on the second one.

  I'm not sure it's worth it, honestly.
