We have been using ~/.config/ for a while now. I actually have a few
other apps that also use it, but doing a 'ls -lsa' in my home
directory shows a LOT of hidden crap!

The RTL function GetAppConfigDir() also uses $XDG_CONFIG_HOME or
.config if not set. A nice move from the FPC team!  :)  It's long
overdue that Linux apps start implementing and using some standards.
It makes cross-distro deployment so much easier.
