I don't know. The documentation suggests it's not going to solve the
problem you want; but I've not used it.

Use something that helps you template your config files. Chef, puppet,
Erb, Perl, bash - whatever works for you.

[ However, I will suggest that rolling your own templating setup is a
strong indicator of an inexperienced sysadmin; one who doesn't yet
understand the value of consistency, the principle of least surprise,
and why NIH is a Bad Thing. ]
