[mrtg] (silly) include question

Routers2 will use the workdir as last seen, and this should be carried on down through Include:d files, although it *doesnt* carry down any defaults set with the [$], [^] or [_] special targets (unlike MRTG).

If it does not know what WorkDir to use, it will use dbpath as defined in the routers2.conf

The problems lie when you have (re)defined WorkDir multiple times to different paths, then you may get unexpected behaviour.  In this case, use Directory[] instead, which Routers2 supports.

My issue is routers2 related. I think that if routers2 doesn't find a
WorkDir entry in a (included) cfg file, it expects to find the rrds in
the "dbpath" . This is a bit off topic though :D
