The "XDG_xxx_DIRS" variables are lookup paths for system defaults for
files not found in the corresponding "XDG_xxx_HOME" folder. So should
probably include at least the fallback location.

Probably the CACHE variable should go to a folder for temporary data.
Not %TMP% because we want it available longer, but it can be flushed
when space is needed on the system.
