You're absolutely right, this is a nice feature to have. I have today
enhanced the `Include' statement so it can handle entire
directories. You can now say
  Include "/etc/collectd.d"
which will (recursively) include all files found within that directory.
Symlinks are followed, so it's the user's responsibility to avoid loops
  # ln -s .. foo

The changes will go into 4.3, so if you want to give them a try you
should try the current development version or get a snapshot from
Sebastian's site.
