Fixes & tests for #393. Also adds ability to pass in multiple config files which cascade from right to left (later files override earlier files' configs).

@tobi put a great use-case very nicely:

Same here, we run from a fork that has this merged. We keep _config.yml with the project but also have which enables things like asset compression and performs some other tasks that are not needed in development environment.


I mentioned another use case in #561:

Some sites hosted on GitHub Pages run Jekyll locally in unsafe mode in order to use plugins, and push static HTML up to GitHub Pages where Jekyll is run in safe mode. This feature would simplify setting up such workflows, especially on documentation projects with many contributors.
