Hello Nicolas!

Ok. As a programmer I was hoping to mix them, because it would be
logical to have _one_ header file that defines all the common things for
a set of related files.

But perhaps I can get away with using SETUPFILEs only. I will see.

Do I understand correctly: the description in the documentation is not
correct in the sense that not all contents from SETUPFILE is evaluated
as if it were included in the buffer?

I am just trying to think about how this limitation, if it exists,
should be expressed in documentation. Shall I give it a try?

Thanks for the clarifying response!
