Additionally, depending on the nature of what's being included, you can
get your loop params inside the include by manipulating interpolation
order in your loop. So, say you have:

[loop ...]
[include file]

and in your include file, you have stuff you'd like to act as the body
of the loop, and could be both loop parameters and real ITL. If you do
the following:

[loop ... interpolate=1]
[file file] [comment] which won't interpolate the guts of file[/comment]

That will slurp both [loop-*] tags and real ITL that can be used as the
body of the loop. This is a little nicer way of doing the
set-to-scratch-then-interpolate-file-with-each-loop method.
