It's great to have the per-user elvi. I recently started writing some of my
own elvi, and will submit what I have for approval, once I work out some bugs
and clean it up.

Just a small comment: I thought XDG was meant for desktop stuff (as in X
Desktop Group). But it can certainly be used for surfraw as well (xterm/screen
in awesome is _my_ desktop!).
