This is all very complicated. How about a simpler idea:
bogofilter uses a single primary directory for its wordlists. This is what
happens now, except we don't call it that. Additional, secondary, directories
can be added, either in a config file or the commandline. The key is that
secondary directories are always considered readonly. All write operations
are performed to the primary databases. This makes sense in the context of
shared system-wide databases: in order to update the system databases, the sysadmin must specify their directory as the primary. For everyone else, the system directories are secondary.
