[Remind-Fans] INCLUDE from ~ or "$HOME"?

Greetings all

I sync my reminders files, and a lot of other stuff, to various machines so I can get a handle on my agenda regardless of machine, and I would like to be able to `INCLUDE` using ~ or "$HOME", but it doesn't appear to be possible, e.g. I currently `INCLUDE syncdir/.holidays`, but if I run remind from anywhere outside my home dir it complains that it can't find the relevant file. I've tried various invocations, including `INCLUDE ~/syncdir/.holidays`, `INCLUDE "~/syncdir/.holidays"`, etc., to no avail. I realise that I could just use `INCLUDE /home/me/syncdir/.holidays` but that rules out one machine where ~ is, for convoluted and somewhat murky reasons that I cannot fully explain, `/usr/home/me`.

A small thing, I know, but I would love to see if it's possible.

Any pointers would be appreciated.
