Comment (by nickm):

 This is a good idea, and I wish we had done it in the first version of the
 `%include` feature. One thing I'm concerned about: How do we handle the
 migration here?  Anybody who currently has a working setup will have it
 fail if we start requiring a suffix that they didn't know to provide, and
 I really don't like breaking compatibility.

 What if we created a new syntax, like:
 %include /etc/torrc.d/*.conf
