What I *used* to do is Option A, against the judicious advice of  
people like Peter Dyballa and Herbert Schulz ---and, yes, you *can*  
use sudo <utility>-sys with maps in ~/Library, you say you did it, I  
*used* to do it, even though it might not be advisable.

But now (finally!) I've come to my senses and follow Option B, and I'm  
happy with it, and it allows me to have exactly the same set up in Mac  
and Linux.
