And the nice thing about OS X is that this hierarchy extends down to the user and up to the
network. They call them "Domains" and have User, Local, Network and System. So, /Library
is just the local domain. There's also ~/Library (User), /Network/Library (Network) and /
System/Library (System). A properly behaved program will look at all of these for a
resource. The search order is User, Local, Network, System. (See Inside Mac OS X, System
Overview chapter 9 for details.)
