It doesn't solve the OP's problem, unless you have a complicated include
system which doesn't just include, but also allows you to restrict
included files to affect only a specific repository.

In view of this, I don't really see what benefit an include capability
gives.

Note that the servers re-load and re-parse the config file for every
connection - in the case of HTTP, this is a lot, and having to do this
for multiple files could get quite unpleasant.

Then, there is the difficultly of defining how to merge conflicting
statements between multiple files.

At the moment, I don't understand any use-cases for include.
