The enviroment variable XDG_CONFIG_HOME states where config files should be placed, and it missing it shoulld default to $HOME/.config/program_name

http://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-0.6.html

This makes for less cluttered home folders and customizable paths for config files.

    Comix now stores its files in XDG_CONFIG_HOME and XDG_DATA_HOME. The changes are in the SVN repository and will be included in the next release.
