I have a killer argument against this syntax: it will be really confusing
when this syntax is run through wml-1.6.8 (the file will be inserted).

So i adopt the ``#depends'' suntax.

  #depends 'datas/0?/*.dat'

Wml < 1.7.2 will see this file as a comment.
It's implemented and should be available at midnight.

Oops, not exactly. The :: syntax works with #include too. The #use
variant ensures files are read only once.
