Doesn't run in test and development environments unless explicitly stated.

Addresses this issue: #33

This whole NODE_ENV stuff is getting kinda ridiculous (unrelated to this diff). I think I'm just going to remove it entirely and leave that up to the user to enable or disable it however they see fit, and I'll bump a new release. The problem is that NODE_ENV is not a standard anywhere, and it's really arbitrarily used, so I'd like to remove this logic entirely since everyone seems to use it differently.

What are your opinions on that?

Alex Zylman

I like that idea, for what it's worth.

I yanked NODE_ENV in d95cdbc. So feel free to just implement this at the app level. :)
