Probably easier to do it the other way around - collect it all in one
big swoop. The extra stuff is all done as comments anyway. And
postprocess those collected files into a second directory/file/repo
for the just-config parts.

The main reason is I want to greatly increase the amount of ancillary data retrieved for each device, but don't want to clutter the configuration file itself, so disaster recovery is simpler.
