The location of the .cfg files is independent of that of the .rdd files.
You can put your .cfg files into subdirs and put one file ("master") in the
top dir with "include" statements for the real config files (do you have
separate instances of mrtg running on these .cfg files or do you already
use a "master" cfg file?). Be careful where to put which config statement:
Some global settings mustn't occur twice.

14all sets this param from the .cfg file (setting "Directory"). It is used
to group targets together (kind of "mis-using" the setting as it gets a
second meaning with 14all).

14all wasn't written with multiple config files in mind (mrtg didn't know
about "include" when I started) so there are just some hacks.
