[wpkg-users] multiple entries for a host in hosts.xml

Dear All,

is it possible to make a host use several profiles like this?

<host ipaddresses="^192\.168\.1\.[0-9]+$" profile-id="common-software" />
<host ipaddresses="192\.168\.1\.12" profile-id="javaprofile" />

Does order of the host entries matter?

I don't understand

> Normally, hosts are parsed from top to the bottom, except when the

( from http://wpkg.org/Regular_expression_support )

Does this mean the first match wins and the others are ignored?

Is there any way to define host groups and to assign programs (or 
profiles) to individual hosts at the same time?
