i can understand, that people want to create new levels.
maybe on base of old levels.
but i see no reason to change them.
isn't it possible, for example, to only have a list file in /var
"level 1 = /usr/share/games/rocksndiamonds/level1.lvl"
where users can add
"user level 1 = /my/home/rnd/ul1.lvl"
or so ?
IMO a basedir parameters would be the best solution.
rnd would use /usr/share/... by default,
but people could call it with e.g. /home/user/rnd/newlevels/
to make it use these levels.
maybe the author has some nice compromise between complexity, functionality,
disk useage and securitty ?
