Seeing Seppe's patch made me think of something I tried to do last

What do folks think about changing the data directory for macOS to
have the major version, to make it a little easier to run KiCad 5 and
6 on the same computer? Am I opening a can of worms?
I really like this idea. You can do it in your CMake configure line by
Right now, it defaults to 'kicad'. If you change it to 'kicad6.0',
you'll get a fresh config directory when you start and shouldn't overlap
with the existing config. I use this to separate multiple builds
(debug/release/v5/etc) on my machine.
