Feature Request: Ignore none existant video sources at startup...


Semi related to the various "Lost Signal/Camera" requests FeatureRequest2006x04x08x061905 It might also be helpful if motion were to ignore configured yet nonexistent video sources upon startup. I'm going to write a little /var/log/messages tailing script that kills, restarts motion, and pages me whenever it encounters a /.+USB disconnect, address.(.)/ string, which seems to be how my cameras get dropped. killall motion and then restarting seems to let the source reconnect, however should a source become permanently unavailable then the restart will fail due to one of the multiple sources no longer existing...
