What about this:
Perhaps indicate the successful loading of those files in the post
window instead of posting an error message when the files are not around.
I routinely check the Pd window for errors at startup, and stumble
accross the gem.conf "error" messages. Wait, hu? What's there? (relief)
oh, only the new gem feature. :-)
Since gem.config is an optional and probly very useful mechanism
changing the way the file loading mechanism reports back might make the
current "problem" much less of an issue?
