--- Comment #9 from Sean P. Kane <spkane00 at gmail.com> ---
This would be very useful in many Linux workflows, including CoreOS.

Making the sshd_config compose-able can be vital in systems, where a
default sshd_config is provided, but another team might need to add a
configuration feature or two, without completely over-ridding the base

I don't think that we need something more than sorting the files if
included using a glob and and then a simple paste on the configs (in
the sorted order) exactly where the include is located.

Most of the time, I only think that two people, teams or systems) will
be managing this, so while there may be edge cases, they should be
reasonably easy to avoid/fix (especially if documented).
