if we fail to find a requested namespace, we should tell the user
which ones we know about, since we already do. this allows users to
feetch all namespaces by specifying a dummy namespace, failing, then
copying the list of namespaces in the config.

eventually, we should have a flag that allows fetching all namespaces
automatically.
