It seems that when you use //= require /filethatdoesntexist, you will not get a Sprockets::FileNotFound error. It behaves as though the directive was simply not there. This is in the context of a Rails app; so far I've been unable to determine whether or not it's a Sprockets issue or a Rails issue, so forgive me if this is in the wrong place.
//= require /filethatdoesntexist
This came up in the context of an issue on jquery-tmpl-rails if you'd like some context.
Could you make a sprockets test case for this. I can work on the implementation.
I kind of don't want to, but I guess we should support absolute requires. We need to beef up the error handling so you get an exception if you require something outside one of your load paths.
