Local customisations of site-wide preferences

info Site-level preferences are located in System.Default Preferences, however this Users.Site Preferences prefs topic has override priority and should be used for local customisations. This allows for easier upgrades as you don't need to worry about the shipped preferences clobbering yours. It's easier to keep a handle on if you only copy over the settings you actually change.
