Syntax definitions in user location don't work.

Description

I wanted to make my own syntax without being force to change system files (/usr/share/mc/syntax) and this doesn't work.

I tried all possible locations:

~/.config/mc/syntax
~/.config/mc/mcedit/syntax
~/.local/share/mc/syntax

Is there any way to use own syntax schemes without being force to become root or to ask admin for it?

I meant location of lang.syntax file like my c.syntax would be put in

~/.config/mc/syntax/c.syntax

All user's syntax-related stuff are located in ~/.local/share/mc/mcedit/syntax/.

I think that ~/.local/share/mc/ should mirror directory hierarchy in /usr/share/mc and user syntax should be in ~/.local/share/mc/syntax/.

I don't have a very strong opinion on this, but I think that cieply makes a valid point. I would prefer our user overrides tree to mirror system and library trees to avoid confusion.
