Divide MYCONFIG.XML into multiple/separate loadable parts

It would be nice to have EG be able to load multiple, separate XMLs so that people could more easily share/test code, and try things without messing with known-good XMLs.

What wrong with using the copy and paste feature? Works pretty well IMO

"wrong"? Nothing at all. But not efficient for testing and/or controlling things separately.

I can walk to work 12 miles each day - and it "works pretty well" but I prefer to be a bit more time efficient and drive my car.

Here's another vote for separate XML config files that can be "included" into the main config. I have been autogenerating XML for my X10 lights automation section and its a pain to copy/paste every time I make a change.
