auth_basic & avoiding duplication in conf file

Sorry if this is a faq. I started using v0.6.32 and I have to turn on
/ off auth based on the url.

I have something like:

server {
    auth_basic ...

    location ~* jpeg {

    location /home/return {
        auth_basic off

    location / {

The problem is, I would like "involved_config" to apply to
"/home/return" as well, but I don't want to copy it there.

I can't move it to server, because it shouldn't apply to other
location directives (eg jpeg).

Is there a clean way around it?
