./cfgmaker foo at bar.example.com >>mrtg.cfg

That's a fine way to deal with things if you have only a few hosts to
monitor.  With a large environment generating individual files per host
and using Include: statements is the only way to keep sane.

One of these days I'll write an Include: that is optional, (cf.
include() and require() in php) so that missing one file doesn't kill
the whole run for the other 600 hosts....
