include directive for conffiles

Rsync does not seem to feature include directives as samba in order to 
manage the config file in several seperate ones. I would like to know if 
I am right and in that case, I suggest it would be an interesting feature.
Separating the configuration of the server itself from the  ressources 
it offers (the modules) allows a simplest management of conffiles 
through a package management system: the part concerning the server can 
be updated each time the packet is and part concerning ressources can be 
managed as "conffiles" in the sense of packaging ie left unchanged 
through the updates.

Thanks for  suggests
