Subject: .include "other_rule_group"  (a wish list item)

Patch 0002 to jumbo-6rc1 is another enhancement from the wish list. This
change will allow a rules section to add an include line, that will pull in
another rules section.


This would have been VERY helpful to have had done, prior to the
crack-me-if-u-can contest.  There we had dozens of rules from kore, and
could have simply kept them in the conf file, and then built a new rules
section (or several of them), that included the other rules groups, in
different order.


The change here was pretty trivial.  There is no recursive checking (which I
am not quite sure how to do), so doing something like this:




.include "test"



Will be a very bad thing to do.



Again, dox have not been updated.  I just put this out now, as a PoC, but it
does work, and is fully functional (in my testing).
