Subject Re: [PATCH] Allow Multiple Config Files
Date Sat, 20 Oct 2001 12:37:29 GMT
I tend to agree with you Martin and understand that
1.0.1 is intended to be a bug fix branch only.  I'll
post a 1.1 patch soon.

As far as the implementation goes, you are correct in
assuming that it is "last one in wins".  This follows
the current implementation of how duplicate elements
are handled.  For instance if I were to declare 2
forwards with the same name the "last one wins".  I
presumed this was accepted behavior based off of the
fact that it already happens this way, but I can
certainly put together a revised patch that logs
duplicates.  What do others think should happen?  I am
personally on the fence and will be happy to submit a
new patch with the desired functionality.
