Horizon can't launch stacks when the templates do file inclusion via 
get_file or type inclusion. There was an effort a while ago to build a 
stack-create workflow which introspected the template/env and prompted 
for the required files but it wasn't completed.

Something I want to discuss in Vancouver is whether we should consider 
supporting an archive format for packaging templates/environments/files 
into a single file. The REST API would *not* support this archive format 
so it would be up to the "client" (horizon server or heat CLI) to unpack 
the archive before calling stack-create.

Something which solves multi-file horizon stack-create would be my No.1 
feature request.
