This is why I wasn't sure about implementing it, but couldn't find
anything definitive either way.

If anyone violently objects, scream now and I'll consider
changing it to ~/.surfraw/ & /etc/surfraw.

I thought of doing both but decided the documentation would get too

Otherwise, I've done my bit to ensure (if the spec catches on) that our
distant descendants will have tidy home directories.
