I don't know. I guess it depends on each repo's layout. If the layout
is simple, usually you would need one or two rules so it's ok to type
again and again. If it's more complicated and starts using '!' rules,
it's probably best to save in a file.

I think this one is better. But if you don't see a need for it, we can
always delay implementing it until an actual use case comes up.
