But is appdirs only useful if you are running something that's more toward system package / desktop application? A lot of projects today create their own directory to save data, many use $HOME/DOTCUSTOM_DIR. So the use case of appdirs should be addressed.
But that is not appropriate on Windows. Appdirs gives the above on Unix, but %APPDATA%\Appname on Windows, which conforms properly to platform standards.
The problem with Windows is that the standard is to put things in an invisible directory, which makes it difficult to tell people, especially non-experts, to edit a file in the directory.
Games that expect people to edit .ini files put them in the game directory.
