Adding programmers in IDE 1.6.x


is there any such easy way of adding programmers to the IDE like adding new boards? In older versions of the IDE I used to edit programmers.txt to add my programmer. But this file is in application folder (on Mac in application bundle) so with every update of the IDE I lose my settings.

I tried to put the programmers.txt into my sketch folder similar to the boards.txt but this doesn't work.
