[Dancer-users] config.yml options not visible to Dancer::Template::HtmlTemplate

Hi all,

While I can set my needed options for HTML::Template in config.yml per the
documentation/guidance of the list, it never reaches
Dancer::Template::HtmlTemplate.  The issue is here, in HtmlTemplate.pm, in
in the render method :

    my $ht = HTML::Template->new(
        filename => $template,
        die_on_bad_params => 0, # Required, as we pass through other params
    return $ht->output;

The problem is that $self->config is empty here.  I'm using version 0.06.

Also, I don't necessarily want die_on_bad_params hard coded that way.

Besides that, what I really miss is the ability to do this sort of thing:

if (condition) {
    set a certain param for the template
} else {
    set some other param

I can't do this because the module doesn't inherit the param method from
HTML::Template.  Can't Dancer be wangled into setting template tokens in
multiple places for a given route, or must it happen all at once?

Side note -- whitespace is apparently syntactically significant in YAML.  Of
what possible benefit is that? 

Clues or opinions welcome.
