Right now you could just generate the whole keepalived.conf. You can
use a macro language or a script that will parse the "import path"
keywords and generate keepalived.conf from keepalived.tpl (or such).

for example, organize things such that the configuration is generated by:
m4 keepalived.tpl > keepalived.conf

then you can use this in keepalived.tpl:

But you are correct, the configuration language for keepalived could
be quite a bit better :)
