Excellent, I'll do as I please then. I went with the first option: When 
building, john.local.conf will be created (empty) if it does not exist. 
But it will never be overwritten and no release tarball should ever 
contain that file.

Also, I committed some other changes I thought are undisputable: Create 
a rules section "Extra" for the, until now, commented-out rules of 
Single mode. Also, add new rules "Single-Extra" (consisting of Single 
plus Extra) and "Jumbo" (consisting of *all* rules we have, including 
NT). I wanted to preserve the name "All" for local use, that's why I 
used "Jumbo" instead.
