Subject: Re: include an .org file and lower the level of all its headers

I don't know about Jianshi's specific needs but I have also wanted
the same thing for myself.

I often put together "standard" information on a variety of topics that
I talk about in separate files.  When I put together a talk for a given
topic I include many of these sub-topics in a given talk.  However, I
usually need different "surrounding" material to preface these topics
and draw conclusions relevant to the main topic.  I would like to be
able to continue to have these sub-topics in separate files and just
include them (by reference - so to speak) in my notes without having
to adjust their heading levels or pasting them directly into my notes.
