I'm always using a modular approach, therefore I already use multiple conf
files inside a conf dir per instance.
Now I want to use a common conf dir plus separate conf dirs for my multiple
dnsmasq instances.

I do not use a monolithic conf file, but a lot of small conf files.
Re-using config dirs, and therefore all conf files in it, for different dnsmasq instances is the benefit.

As you ask for it, so it is not possible right now?
