Hmm... in that case I think you can just create a multiple input data parameter.
<input type="data" format="tabular" multiple="true" name="inputs"
You can iterate through the files in your <command> tag and pass them
to your merge.py file:
<command interpreter="python">merge.py #for $input in $inputs# $input
#end for# ...
This works unless you literally need 9 files - this input type doesn't
support min/max right now. (There is a Trello card that includes
adding such functionality if you want to vote on it
I hope this helps - let me know if this is not quite right.
