just no, i hate when programs put visible folders in my home directory
automatically, yes, i'm looking at you, lmms. Having ~/.blender is
perfectly fine and desirable, what should be fixed is the position and
use of the sistem-wide shared files, most distributions put them in
/usr/share/blender and use a shell script to verify .blender and
symlink the system scripts if they don't exist there, works, but it's
ugly imo. Couldn't blender just look for it's files in ~/.blender, and
if they don't exist there search in the system-wide path? that way,
scripts bundled with blender are automatically updated by the package
manager, and the user can add more/override existing scripts putting
them in ~/.blender. that should be enough to "fix" the issue.
