Does this mean there can be two sets of configuration files:

- One system-wide in /Library/TeXworks on the Mac (and similar  
locations on Windows and Linux I imagine).

- The other user-specific in ~/Library/TeXworks on the Mac (and ...).

And if so:

- Do the completion-rules and typesetting tools etc. in the user- 
specific files add up to or replace those in the system-wide files?

- What do the typesetting tools entered through the pref window  
modify? The user-specific files (I suppose), or the system-wide ones  
(I suppose not)? Does this mean the system-wide config files have to  
be written in a text editor (as opposed to the pref GUI)?
