New issue 484 by cristikl... at gmail.com: Use XDG Base Directory Specification


Would it be possible to make xmonad respect the XDG Base Directory [1]  
specification? This would allow the user's home directory to be more  
organized and clearly separate configuration files, cache files and user  

For xmonad the following changes would be necessary:
- move ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs to $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/xmonad/xmonad.hs
- move other generated files (like xmonad.hi) to $XDG_CACHE_HOME/xmonad/

Thanks in advance,
Cristian KLEIN.
