It is just as easy to look at the include file itself, and if it is
the same for every file you use, you'd have it memorized soon enough.

Well - thinking hard about it I have to agree it's not really necessary to see the contents of the file.

Seeing it at the beginning of any org file was just quite convenient when I started using org-mode and was still modifying my used TAG set etc.

Agreed, a simple "standard" include mechanism would do it very well!


Taking the idea a little "around the corner" I wonder if it would be possible to hide everything that begins with a "#" before the first heading. Application: I have my org files under subversion control and carry around this line at the beginning of my files:

# SVN $Revision: 385 $  $Date: 2007-08-21 23:50:43 +0200 (Di, 21 Aug 2007) $

I would like to hide that and similar lines unless showing all with "C-c C-a". Also a possible "#include" line could be hidden. If somebody wants to see the lines - of course - a config option would do it.
