I use something similar to this on part of my site (though I use
require, not include).  But is there any way to avoid having to
set $updated in every file?  I tried to use something like 

Last modified: <?php print("$datemod") ?>

in the included footer, but all I could get it to do was print the
last-modified date of the footer file, not of the file including
it.  Is there any PHP way to say "the last-modified date of the
html file (not the PHP include) currently being shown" ?
I hate having to edit every file on the site to add identical
snippets of code; seems like that goes against the whole point
of having includes.
