Yeah, I know...(:include:) was the first thing I tried, but as PM
says, that doesn't work.

I'm just glad I'm able to understand correctly how it *does* work.

One last thing:  I observe that on the page Site.NotifyList, the
instructions can be set up this way, and still appear to work:

(:if false:)
    notify=user1 at example.com etc group=XYY squelch=86400

Is that as straight-forward as it seems - I can hide them via (:if
false:) and they'll still operate?
