Just a correction, the precedence is file patterns (globs) → scopes 
→ untargeted settings.

The file patterns are ranked based on locality where the scope selectors 
are ranked based on how much of the scope they match, e.g. a global 
`text.plain` wins over a local `text`, and finally the untargeted 
settings are ranked based on locality (like the file patterns).

It should probably just be intermixed, so a local untargeted setting 
wins over less local but targeted settings.
