Including wp-blog-header.php does not produce any output at all unless
you have WP_USE_THEMES defined to be true.
Including wp-config.php directly means that the Loop will not be
initialized properly, and a lot of functionality won't be called
correctly if you're running something in the wp-admin directory. This
latter part probably means little to a plugin, I grant you, but if you
want it to get the normal posts Loop, you need to include
wp-blog-header.php, not wp-config.php.
wp-blog-header.php is basically the starting point for all of
WordPress. Starting with wp-config.php skips bits.
