If the forge is down or firewalled, and you try to run something like this:

puppet module install pmtacceptance-php

You will get a pretty misleading error message:

Error: end of file reached
Error: Try 'puppet help module install' for usage

Hopefully the forge won’t be down often, but if it is, it seems like we should give a better error…
