[Remind-Fans] multiple config file at runtime

I have encountered a situation where it would be handy to be
able to call a different set of config files at run time.

For example, I have home.rem and work.rem family.rem.  Sometimes
I want to be able to see a combination of them.

So far all I have found two awkward ways to do it. 

Create some more .rem files with just "include" lines.
Create directories with symlinks to the real files.

Both of these ways work, but require me to set up - and remember
- all the permutations. That is, one for home+work, one for work
+family, one for home+family, one for all three.

What I'm hoping for is a way to pass the list of files to remind
when I run if from my bash shell. Like 
$ remind -c+2 home.rem work.rem

Is there a way that I just missed?
