That's because they're all on here being confused instead.

Anyway, FormFu can keep its own policies on stuff, but the controller etc.
need to document that those config files are *FormFu* configs and nothing
to do with Catalyst.

I'm not trying to force decisions on non-Catalyst-specific stuff - or not
over this, anyway ;) - I'm just trying to make sure the Catalyst-related
stuff's consistent since the change of format is a big thing and I don't
want to have to do it again :)
