The include features in xconf allows to very simply add or remove a 
block by just moving files around. I would like to keep this simplicity 
and avoid by all means to go back to some build-time generation of these 
files like we have today with xpatch in 2.1

There aren't that much inter-block dependencies, and I don't have the 
feeling hand maintaining them is really complicated.
