hosts allow

So far, so good with 1.9.18p1 on HPUX 10.20 (kudos to the Samba team!).

However, I've got a question....

I'd like to be able to restrict access to some of our services, and can
certainly do so with the "hosts allow = " entry in smb.conf - it does
exactly what I want.  But...  I plan on bringing Samba up on a few campus
hosts, some of which have more extensive listings of PCs I wish to grant
access to than others.  Since we're using HPUX, there's no hosts_access
service, and this leads to my question:  is there a way to refer to a file
containing the allowed lists on the "hosts allow = " line, or must I put
them all on one line?  If the latter, is there a limit on the line length,
and/or can I extend a given line by using a backslash ("\") or something
else as a line continuer?
