Seems I promissed too much. While it is no problem to add '#include',
it's not practical. The problem is paths, specifically: How can I
specify the path that is searched for the rulesets in a nice,
OS-independend way? I haven't found a solution as this means both

a) Parsing the command line parameters (is there a Boost-solution?)
b) Assembling filenames from a given path + a name (with an optional
leading sub-path?)

Both is easy if I just concentrate on my own system, but I guess this is
not enough for Boost. OTOH such a feature (#include) is not really
needed, is it? It would be a nice helper but it could also be done from
the outside (i.e. the 'make'-system, etc.). Any ideas, comments, ...?
