[Mediawiki-l] "include" mechanism in MW?

I am interested in adding mechanically-generated content
(e.g., text, images) to MediaWiki pages, as discussed in


I think that the cleanest way to do this might be to let the
user put in an "include" request for some specified content.
A program could then note the request and generate a file,
which MW could fold into the page whenever it was displayed.

Problem is, I don't know what provision (if any) MW has for
including files, etc.  I've looked over Help:Contents and
the extensions list, but I haven't recognized anything that
seems relevant.  Any pointers would be appreciated.
