Well, I made a patch that supports this standard. I tested it and it
seems work fine.
It adds a build option (disable by default) so for the moment does not
imply any drastic change.
I know changing paths should not be done lightly... but:
* It's a FreeDesktop standard.
* Popular apps like Chrome, PulseAudio, VLC, Transmission,
Qt Framework, Wormux, GStreamer... support it.
* There are more and more software supporting it or they are working
on it (Firefox and Gimp, for example)
This is NOT about just moving hidden .blender in a huge .config. It's
about separation of user data, preferences and cache element.
But for now the patch only supports XDG_DOCUMENTS_DIR and XDG_CONFIG_HOME.
