[mrtg] Feature Suggestion

A quick feature suggestion. Below is an example of a cfgmaker/indexmaker
batch file I use. There are several "globals" that I use for each device on
my network. Among them are the back ground images, and other customizations
that are the same for every page created for my WAN. This gives a nice
fluid look, and by having my cfg files seperate for each device I can keep
documentation modular. Now I have 38 such lines in my main "build.bat"
file. It would be a great feature if cfgmaker and indexmaker had an option
to read in globals from a single file. that way I could put all this just
once into a single "profile" file if you will, and keep the actual command
line smaller. I think at some point ther is an actual limit to what will
work on a single command line anyway, isn't there?

Does this sound like a good idea?

Thanks again Tobi (and supporters) for a great tool!
