Well, that's the problem. A valid 1.4 BosConfig is still a valid
BosConfig with a DAFS-enabled bosserver, it's just not what most people
will want. So, I don't think we can error out with a message saying how
to change it, since it's conceivable someone will want that
configuration. So, we could just print out a warning, basically saying
"if things don't work, here's probably why". Or I suppose we could have
a new bosserver flag that forces allowing the uncommon config.
