Description of the change

  Handle lack of .laikarc properly

  If the user does not have a ~/.laikarc, the following error is displayed:

   Error: unsupported configuration file format

  and laika exits.

  This is improper behavior. Laika should gracefully use the built-in
  defaults if the user does not have a .laikarc.

  Remove the has_section check, as it causes us to exit prematurely.
  Instead, rewrite the try..except block more generally, so that on
  any exception (either a ConfigParser.NoOptionError or
  ConfigParser.NoSectionError), we fall back to the defaults.

  Fixes LP: #676112
