There's two options: allow the user to select the file, or if there's
a "right" thing to do, then do that.

If we want to allow the user to select the file, then we should give
them a radio button list of potential files.  Grey out the ones that
they can't write to.  Select the last one per bwy's suggestion to use
the last one.

If we search for .rc filename in the order of specificness, then I
agree that writing the last one is the correct thing to do.  When
would anybody object to that?
