Now, if we're listing requests for the next version of MRTG, what I'd really like to have is a wildcarded Include, such as:
  Include: *.cfg
so that you never need to recreate your master.cfg when running MRTG in daemon mode.

Having a missing Include: file as a warning rather than a fail would be useful too, although you'd need to be able to do it both ways (your global.cfg would need to be a required, but the various host.cfg files can of course be missed)
