No, not for sharing. I just don't like them to be in /usr, but that's
by and large a stylistic preference, and I won't dwell on it.

Works for me, too.

IMHO there is really just one sensible ordering here. Always prefer
the ones installed by hand, and only if they are not present, fall
back to the system defaults. The other way around would mean that the
admin couldn't do local overriding any more.

Thanks,

Martin
