Definitely in favor, since my home directory lives on a network  
filesystem but state like this needs to be per-host.  I currently have  
some *very* ugly workarounds that mostly work (need to be careful with  
~, and with programs like ssh which trust /etc/passwd instead of  
$HOME), but proper XDG_CONFIG_HOME support would make most of it  

And if xmonad doesn't come with this support I will have to install it  
locally:  *all* undergrad accounts live in AFS, not local disk, so  
xmonad won't work when the user is logged into multiple machines  
(which they will be; ECE undergrad coursework involves large  
distributed Matlab and Cadence runs).
