You don't need to merge the val-tags files -- the missing tags will be
discovered and added whenever they're used for the first time.  On the
other hand, they're easy to merge: "sort -u" should do nicely.

The history file is used only by the history subcommand -- if you don't
care about that, there's no need to merge the files.  If you do, then it
should suffice to simply concatenate them together (of course, you could
remove any entries for foreign stuff first if you want).
