feature request - config loop

I have several hosts which i monitor the same services in the same way. 
  each host has 60 lines of config.

instead of doing

Group "host1" {
   # 60 lines of config
Group "host2" {
   # 60 lines of [basically] same config

it'd be nice to do something like

For Group /host1 host2 host3/ {
    # lines of config with ability to evaluate for $host
    hostname: $host
    messagedn: Top:foo:bar:$host is DOWN
    # lots more config
