request: 'include' directive for sources.list

Hi all,

recently there are increasingly many cases where
someone says

please test these packages in

We can handle this by modifying /etc/apt/sources.list
of course.  But there is an absolute distinction between
official Debian site and sites where some test packages
or so reside so I think it is much easier if sources.list
can include some files by 'include' diective.

For example;

# See sources.list(5) for more information, especial
# Remember that you can only use http, ftp or file URIs
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb http://non-us.debian.org/debian-non-US stable non-US
include unofficial.list
include private.list

then it will read the settings of unofficial.list and 
private.list so it is enough to modify unofficial.list
and/or private.list generally.

This will make sources.list very clear and simple.

Thanks in advance,		2000.6.25
