I assume you mean "use test;" to be equivalent, just in case anyone thinks 
'load' is some voodoo module that should be loaded :)

Either way, the scaffolding script in the devel branch writes out the app.pl 
file using load_app, so that method should work cleanly without problems - 
looks like we may have something to fix here.

I think that was the idea of the example, to demonstrate a simple, easy, silly 
mistake which should be reported clearly by Perl, but apparently results 
instead in a simple "unable to load application" message, with the true error 
message swallowed :)

Yes, if you don't mind, go ahead and raise it at 
http://github.com/sukria/Dancer/issues - one of us can then investigate in 
detail as soon as possible.
