I can't say I see any particular gain of putting things in ~/Library
etc. I've used OS X for a while now and I never go messing around in
there...I don't know if that makes me different or alike to other Mac
It sure would be easy enough to look for config files in there, but is
it worth it? I'm leaning towards "NO" on this one.
