Hi James and Sumant,

This is just a quick note, hopefully I'll have time to look
at the code properly tomorrowish.

Great! One thought, as we now potentially have


maybe its time to move everything into ~/.surfraw/:


We could maintain backwards compatibility with the current locations,
basically forever if necessary.

We could even go wild (well, not very wild :) and implement the XDG
basedir spec (http://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/latest/),
or is that meant for X apps only?

Patches to the list please, at least initially. If you become a regular
contributer we can sort out commit access.
