indicates the splicing of inherited configuration;
the next entry (if any) then starts a new pair.
If the second entry in a pair is empty,
it indicates that the directory in the first entry is to be left untranslated
(which has the same effect as if the directory had been repeated).
For example, @code{"/foo:/bar::/baz:"} means that
things under directory @file{/foo/}
are translated to be under @file{/bar/},
then include the inherited configuration,
then specify that things under directory @file{/baz/} are not translated.
