no way to append own (~/.config/...) Syntax to packaged Syntax

There's no (easily discernible) way to include one's own Syntax rules in addition to the package's ('system') Syntax rules.

First thing, personal and package's Syntax are mutually exclusive: on Linux, either ~/.config/mc/mcedit/Syntax or /usr/share/mc/syntax/Syntax works, but not both.

Second thing, seems Syntax file cannot be included from another Syntax file. Trying to put into personal Syntax this...

file .\* refer to package's Syntax
include /usr/share/mc/syntax/Syntax

...effects in error on the first 'file' line in package's Syntax.

Can anything be done?

Well, I can't make you to do anything, but that's not a duplicate of a feature request (3 years old). That's config files not working properly, detracting from product's user value.

Seems that include or source or import keyword help.

Another way - use /xxx.d/ directory and load files on name order (NN-xxxx patterns) see #1677. This look more promising.

But before do this it is necessary define read priority order or conflict resolution strategy (in documentation). See arguments in #3191.
