AWN doesn't respect XDG_* settings

Bug Description

I have XDG_CACHE_HOME, XDG_CONFIG_HOME, and XDG_DATA_HOME customized, but AWN doesn't respect those settings. AWN creates ~/.config/awn/ when it should be creating $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/awn. The same goes for creating the autostart file.

I'm on Ubuntu Karmic and I've installed AWN via the PPA.

I've found a few places where the .config directory is hardcoded. I've fixed most of them in my branch (linked to this bug). There's one more place in awn-settings where I'm not entirely sure how to deal with it (see awn-settings/ in my branch, r691).
