[Bug 983734] Re: Keystone fails badly if you miss one option


I'd like the defaults to be configurable by distributors, distutils,
etc. and this is a common pattern with autoconf based projects.

What I don't accept, though, is that we should require users to specify
config options just because we can't figure out a mechanism to get sane
defaults right out of the box. And requiring users to re-write their
config files when they update to new versions is not a workable

Bug description:
  If you misspell or forget one option in keystone.conf (like
  template_file  for TemplatedCatalog backend), Keystone will fail with
  misguiding critical failure (in my case, "TypeError: coercing to
  Unicode: need string or buffer, NoneType found").
