I'd vote for XDG basedir spec, because:
a) We already have the required functionality in libxfce4util, no need to
b) This is the future and I don't see any reason why we should wait for
KDE/gnome/whatever to adopt it.
(And btw. I like Brian's idea of taking the chance to cleanup/splitup
everything a bit).
