Uff, as I said the main idea is so you can map different items to
different paths in a sort of clean way. Sadly the naming convention
assumes that you want to map /usr/local in your home.

People (Flameeyes?) might find useful to have the config easy to backup
and the caches easy to flush.

lu - again nice ideas with shoddy implementation...
