Thanks for correcting my understanding.
How about an option for the include that selects the include behaviour,
eg extract from first only, or extract from all.

What I want to do is extract the first n lines from as many includes
as it takes, eg
(:include Page1#from1#to1 Page2#from2#to2 lines=12 :)
