WrenGROGGS uses a number of strategies to determine your preferences. To
obtain what are known as your 'primary preferences' (ie. everything except

Items found later in the list override those found earlier, and shared
secrets are scanned after the configuration files, but before
the environment variables (which allows the configuration files to
specify alternate groggsecret filenames).
- Its internal (compiled-in) defaults.
- Your .groggsrc file (by default ~/.groggsrc), which is in
Ian Jackson's groggsrc format.
- Your .groggprefs file (by default ~/.groggprefs), which is in
- Some rules based on environment variables.
- The command line.
