[Bug 1105785] Re: Please support the XDG base directory specification


** Description changed:

  Please support the XDG base directory specification. It looks like
  compiz in Ubuntu 13.04 Alpha uses ~/.compiz to store its cache. The
  cache should be stored in $XDG_CACHE_HOME/compiz instead
  This will make backups noticeably easier and will help reduce the
  excessively cluttered home directory problem.
  More information at http://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-
  spec/latest/ar01s03.html or
