Provide include semantics for config

I would like to extract alias definitions to a centralized config file and reference this from the master app config. See:

        I totally agree, who has its config file for an entire app in the web.config of a webapp or app.config of a test project ?

        Writing an extension of UnityContainer which can handle multiple files just requires a few lines of code but it should be provided out of the box.

        something like 'import' with spring :
        <unity xmlns="...">
        <import resource="an_embedded_resource"/>
        <import resource="an_embedded_resource"/>
        <import resource="an_embedded_resource"/>
        </unity>

        <import/> could also be a child element of the <container/> tag.
