Try it, you'll like it. <G>

One "gotcha" to watch out for...

In config files global parameters means GLOBAL. That means that you can't 
have a "Workdir:" statement in one Include file and then "change" it in 
another. The way the parser works, the last one "wins."

The way I handle it is I create one file with all my global parameters and 
Include: it first. Then I REMOVE all globals from the devices configs.

There are two benefits to this approach. One, I don't accidently shoot 
myself in the foot. Two, I can have one CFG file for MRTG cron job and then 
a different CFG for accessed by 14all for displaying. So I can have 
different groupings of devices for display purposes than querying purposes.
