Okay, I really am trying to play nice. You know my opinion on
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME and my reasons therefore. This particular user
<http://www.gelato.unsw.edu.au/archives/git/0606/21877.html> seems okay
with setting a littany of environment variables in his .profile. Would
an $XMONAD_HOME work for you?

In case you're curious why I am okay with this option: This way, it's an
explicit choice by the user, and not something thrust upon him by his
particular platform that we then have to discover during an IRC support
