When loading plugins, if {...}{Module} is undefined, we really ought to guess {Plugins}{...}{Module}='Foswiki::Plugins::$name'

I tried it and deleted a module definition and things still work. This would avoid some pain, especially since we don't have any easy way to go back and add a Module definition

Crawford, any thoughts. Seems to work fine and helps the "just work" model we are trying to get to with the bootstrap.

Yes, Good idea.

Well, I'm at a loss. On Beta1 it was reporting an error if {Module} was missing. But on beta 2, it all just works. I removed all of the {Module} settings from LocalSite.cfg and still it all just works. Worse, I cannot figure out where this is getting defined.

This is a No Action, and I have no idea why.

PEBCAK - I was probably testing one vhost while editing the config for a different vhost. Confirmed. and simple fix makes things a bit more reliable. Though this issue typically is only encountered with pseudo_install.
