@bmeck ... Good work here, I think this is simple enough and core enough to warrant that it be pulled into nconf itself. No rush, this is clearly meeting our needs right now.
Let me know your thoughts.
@bmeck In the 0.3.0 tag of nconf I have added these features along with a more robust merge method and some helpers for merging files.
Lets take a look at where we're using reconf, update it for firstname.lastname@example.org and kill this repo?
