Joey, are you willing to support this config location in addition to
~/.mrconfig? I know inflation of possible config locations is A Very
Bad Thing, but this would help clean up my layout significantly. Atm,
I am making do with a softlink in anticipation of eventual support.

Fwiw, I would prefer mr to always look for configs in this order;
stopping at the first hit:


Optionally, $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/mr/config.d/sites-enabled/*[.mrconfig] or
I'll just keep on including it via the main config file.

I agree.
