*sigh* All this can be so easily achieved by a few symlinks. But I guess
that's out of scope as well, eh? I think a cooler solution would be a
second config plugin for those files. However I don't know if it is
really needed. I mean: how often are those files changed? Twice a year?

Personally I think this isn't worth any work. The local file for the
wordblock file may be a good idea, though.
