It is possible -- as long as the included page doesn't have a newline
at the end.  See http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Test/IncludeWithoutNewline .

When creating (:include:) there was some consideration given about
whether it should automatically insert or remove newlines around
the included file; I finally decided that the best course was to just
do the straightforward thing and then leave it alone until there was a
better case to be made for doing something different.
