Is there also a way we can perform an 'include' of other documentation?

Perhaps when writing something you want to include within the body of 
the documentation some other existing documentation (perhaps a list of 
functions... or whatnot), but don't want to copy/paste it in because 
then you end up with the issue of documentation getting updated in one 
space, and not the other.
