Actually, no; inn.conf is currently handled in a somewhat odd fashion and
the parser used by innd ignores anything it doesn't recognize silently.
One of the things I'm going to fix with the new parser (it was done that
way to support adding additional configuration parameters that are only
used in shell scripts, but I think the additional checking is worth the
minor hassle and bloat from storing in the struct parameters only used by
the scripts).
