Hi Kai,

No, that looks wrong. Take a look at the overloading examples in the wiki,
to see what you'd need... Basically a ruleset that overload a "pure allow"
file for localhost...;-). Remember to do both name and type!
The ruleset(s) need a normal defaulr entry for the respective
filename/filetype rulesets.
