What a great idea
Some of this functionality is covered by
Class PatternSet.NameEntry
public PatternSet.NameEntry createInclude()add a name entry on the include

    createInclude in class MatchingTask


public PatternSet.NameEntry createIncludesFile()add a name entry on the
include files list

    createIncludesFile in class MatchingTask

    and PatternSet.NameEntry has

      Method Summary
           java.lang.String evalName(Project p)

           java.lang.String getName()

           void setIf(java.lang.String cond)

           void setName(java.lang.String name)

           void setUnless(java.lang.String cond)

           java.lang.String toString()

  so you see the list of included files is included based on the conditional
  of setIf() and setUnless() and evalName()
I have a sense that Im missing another feature of #if #elif #endif you are
speaking of???

This is something we should think about
