there is no disadvantage great enough to keep you from using them. the
only "disadvantage" i can think of is to make sure you use them
properly. don't nest them. it makes tracking errors and such very
difficult when you start to nest includes. (you can get away with one
nest, but beyond that it starts to get muddled.)
