You might want to split your config in multiple files (e.g. a common
one and a router specific one) and include them.
E.g. each of our bird config files contains a line like this:
include "/etc/bird/bird.conf.local";
In that file we specify the router id and a couple of variables used
in otherwise common configurations.
