Not always true.
- For example fvwm2 reads the global config file only if there is not .fvwm2rc
  in your homedir.
- The global xsession file only starts the default window manager if you don't
  have a .xsession file in your homedir.

On the other hand, some programs read both. An example is Mutt. It first parses
the global and then the personal config file.

So both flavors are possible and used. We should decide which of these two
possibilities makes the most sense.

I think it's best if both are parsed. Not because it's usual behaviour of
other programs but because IMHO it makes the most sense in this case.
