This was removed so that it would be nil if not manually set, that way we can determine at runtime whether the user is trying to give a specific command at execute time (which should always be respected), if not, we'll fall back to checking environment variable elsewhere in the code before dropping down to zero.

Although not the most elegant of solutions (in my opinion) it works great and will do for now. Personally I think it would be nicest to have the delay passed into the post-commit hook call:

doc = "#!/bin/sh\nlolcommits --capture --delay #{delay}\n"

Although I haven't figured out yet how to pass the delay variable in there. But for now this will do I guess :)

Ah, the reason I didn't pass it in there is it would basically be impossible to modify later then -- say you want to change the delay, you'd have to track down every single repo you installed it in and modify the stub hook file manually.

Also since the stub files are outside of the gem codebase, I'm trying to keep all logic out of them (hence, stubs), since they can't be upgraded over time along with gem update as the codebase evolves.

You're right. Let's leave it like this. I initially thought you might want to have different delays for different projects but I guess that's not really a use case at all.. I only started this delay feature because the pictures it took on an old iMac were dark/black.
