When defining a place for config files, cache files, and so on, people usually hack around in a OS-dependent, misinformed, and therefore wrong way.
There is a beautiful little module that does things right and is easy to use: appdirs
TI think this is a *really* good candidate for the stdlib...
Who maintains appdirs? Is s/he willing to maintain it on the stdlib's release schedule? If so, I'd be +1 on this; Python has a strong precedent for papering over OS differences and providing a consistent platform. ChrisA
