I know. I was referring to my original query about including all files
in a directory with a single "include" statement. I use single-file
includes already. I'd just like to be able to do 'include "/etc/tsig/"'
as a single line to slurp in any and all files in that directory, or
possibly put some simple file globing statements like 'include
"/etc/tsig/*.key";'. It's not a big deal, though.
