Yesterday you sent me mail regarding Re: [mrtg] announce mrtg-2.9.0pre21...:

*> Hey Toby, you might want to clarify a couple of things (if you 
*> answered this in a readme, sorry.  I haven't tried 21 yet).
*> Will the Include directive honor directives like WorkDir, ImageDir, 
*> Directory, etc... or will the initial config file's global Directives 
*> carry over to these?  If I define a WorkDir in my initial config and 
*> a Directory in one of my includes, will my files end up in my 
*> WorkDir/Directory?
*> What happens if I have a RunAsDaemon in one of those included configs?
*> Are multiple instances of MRTG forked off to process each include in 
*> parallel or is it sequential?
*> I haven't seen anyone ask these yet but these are the questions I had 
*> after hearing about the new directive.  Like I said, I haven't yet 
*> tried it to find the answers myself.  I figure the best place to go 
*> for this info is 'da man himself. :-)

the include is just an include ... no magic whatsoever ...

like a #include "file" in cpp
