I am not sure that people know how to use the 'include' syntax in mpd.

i have not used it for a long time but I do remember that my setups were very simple,
because I used a kind of template entry to hold all teh common stuff.

ah here it is.. in this example I use 'load' to save lots of typing..

        set link yes acfcomp protocomp
        set link no pap
        set link no chap
        set link keep-alive 2 15
        set link mru 900
        set link mtu 900
#       set link bandwidth 1440000
