Hi Dan, if you *really* need the include thing, you can use cpp and #include "files". That should work and you will not need to invent your own wheel ;)

Another approach could be write a wrapper for haproxy initscript (or executable, directly) that "cat"s the config parts or so, but I think "cpp" approach is simpler and would fit your needs.
