No, just override. It's hard otherwise since you would have to keep the
lists sorted by resolution/fps.

If you want to set it yourself, then just do a complete override.

Stick to @, so: vivid.webcam=640x480@15@25@30@90@120

This looks like a good proposal to me.

BTW, I still would like to add 640x480 added to the default list:
it's a common resolution and it makes sense to add it.

So I plan to accept the patch regardless.

Hans
