[OS X TeX] local vs. global symlink

The last days I used the local symlink for tex and found that its  
more convenient for me: Switching is simpler, for no password is  
required, and the command line I didn't need, since I ran texdoc from  
Local Switcher and kpsewhich as a TeXShop macro, and these are the  
only tex related commands that I use in the terminal.

The majority of tex users will therefore be better served by using a  
local symlink.
