Right. I was a bit too quick while typing.

Okay. That sounds like an awful lot of stuff to consider for storing
data and configs. I guess for the unpack scenario, xdg would be
worthless anyway.
I just saw the discussion going into the direction of location and
scan order of system and user files/dirs and thought the xdg spec
would be a perfect match on linux.

If you mean the spec at
then that's a real shame. I found the spec logical and predictable.
