Not a huge amount of help with your task, but don't forget that multiple default sections are valid, and take effect on the non-defaults sections following them - but only up to the /next/ defaults section. I.e. (IIRC!) with this: defaultsA backend #1 listener #2 frontend #3 defaults B listener #4 A's settings affect #1, #2 and #3, and B's settings affect #4. It would be different and quite possibly materially different if you concatenated all the defaults together at the top, and only then defined #1-#4. HTH, Jonathan
