Agreed. It was not really a useful sample; it was a simplified example as I
was testing to illustrate my question about the nesting. After Vadim's
response, I understand a little more.

Right. What I wasn't seeing was a substition in the generator below it and
couldn't understand why.

A way to dynamically choose/load skins and other config information that was
particular to a client.

Eventually that'll be driven from a session or cookie setting but I wanted
to get the snippet in place first, so I thought I could do that all in the
matcher itself.

I've only just figured out that a better pattern is:

  <map:resource name="clientconfig">
    <map:generate src="config/{client}.xml" type="file" />
    <map:serialize type="xml"/>

<map:match pattern="mypage">
   <map:call resource="clientconfig">
      <map:parameter name="client" value="magnet" />

And next I'll try to change the matcher to something that'll give me the
client value.
