There must be some communiaction problem or lack of effort to check
the typical Unix way, cos I am not saying that the hidden dir is the
only way, just part of a nice and typical method:

- hidden directory in $HOME -> user only

If something is not compatible from one version to another, make
subdirs or add versioning. The app should go first to the common

configurable paths, it should not be hard to get the idea working, the
main problem is that the app does not go against it directly, or
implements it poorly.

And in MacOSX, a similar concept applies, global files and personal
files, just cosmetic differences. Any multiuser OS could (should?) do
