Is there such a thing? I suspect one could hack something up,
but is such an approach considered standard? Or even doable?
Doable? Yes...Smart to do? IMHO, absolutely not.

With the recipe class methods that accomplish each stage of the
build you can customize them any way you want, but at the expense of
maintaining clear intent and keeping it maintainable.

Your initial approach of using common includes and a heirarchical
inheritance for separate recipes makes more sense.
i suspected as much, i just wanted to confirm there was no
super-clever way to do this.
