Note that the point is moot, since I'm going to accept Christian's
PEP, i.e. ~/.local, but this argument "you can make it visible
yourself" is bogus. The point of visibility (when it's brought up)
isn't that you *can* make it visible -- you can always do that with ls
-a or whatever Finder option. The point is that (in some people's
view) the results of an action should be left *in plain sight* so that
the user has clear evidence of what happened.

I'm fine in this case with the counterarguments though, so I'll be
accepting the PEP in a minute.
