Here's an example of what I meant. Forgive me for making syntax up on the
fly...
--------
config_path = "home"
;config_path = "work"

#include "usr/jal/configs/" + config_path + "/proxy.ini"
--------

A simpler, non-recursive approach to this problem might be to allow the
user to specify a "supplemental" config file that retains all the context
(i.e. variables) of the "default" config file and then overrides settings.
For example, the command line

myprog

Reads defualt.ini. Whereas

myprog -subconfig home.ini

reads default.ini, followed by home.ini, as though the two files were appended.
