Making Things More Convenient

One of the biggest goals of Tourmaline since its inception has been to make things easier on the bot developer, while also limiting the possibility of runtime exceptions that cause the bot to go down. Those are both reasons why I chose Crystal as the language to build this framework on, as it's both easy to use with a beauitful syntax, and compiled with a strong type system which keeps you (for the most part) from making mistakes that could prove fatal during runtime. Well today I'm happy to announce a couple changes to the framework itself that should also serve to make life easier on you, the bot developer.
