There's a couple of options, ranging from 'doing something else' to hacking a special case where if this plugin is seen it gets installed ASAP.  Thoughts and discussion welcomed.
The approach I've favored for a while is remove ConfigLoader and setup 
config via a custom class. Also allows loading config external of 
Catalyst. Like so:

   name => 'MyApp::FunnyIO::Web',
   # Disable deprecated behavior needed by old applications
   disable_component_resolution_regex_fallback => 1,
   enable_catalyst_header => 1, # Send X-Catalyst header
   %{ MyApp::FunnyIO::Config->config || {} }

Also just as a matter of current taste, I tend to inject "log" into the 
$app instance from new:

builder {

   my $app = MyApp::FunnyIO::Web->new;

       $app->config->{log}, autoflush => 1

   $app->apply_default_middlewares( $app->psgi_app );
