What would be the usecase? I doubt passing the whole list as args or a file
which then needs to be parsed first is useful. However I can imagine a flag to
override the list and use one specific stylesheet regardless of the site.

I currently don't need those scripts, just the css is fine for me. I know some styles have them included, but it might be more complex than my
current approach to support those as well, which is why I have not looked into
it yet.

Currently I only use 4 site specific styles apart from the default one. These 4
I only use because I visit those sites regularly and I could not adapt the
default style to display them nicely without breaking/overloading the default
style. This way of using my patch is a setup-once-and-it's-done thing, but maybe
other users like it more flexible?
