Not unless we have to. And I'm not sure we want them to differ here.

Well, Windows also has that concept, %USERPROFILE%. And having quotas
on it isn't a limitation unique to Windows :)

In Bert's case, these people have working copies somewhere, and what we
want is to store the metadata there rather than at the %USERPROFILE%,
right? Wouldn't setting --config-dir (via env var?) to a path sibling to
the working copies achieve that effect as well?

Daniel

(do we already allow setting --config-dir by an env var?)
