Er, no. If the name or location of the source'd file ever changes,
you're going to have to modify all users' .gimprc's. Not good.
The Right Way (not exactly the same as My Way, but close enough):

	if ~/.gimprc-local-only exists:
		source ~/.gimprc-local-only
	else:
		source all of /etc/gimp/gimprc.*
		source ~/.gimprc, if it exists
