Bug Description

Bad paths for config and hiscores in windows

*** Demoing the config path problem:
choose options
start game
modify any seting, by example 'sound volume'
You see a traceback similar to
   File "C:\Python26\share\enjuewemela\enjuewemela\", line 65, in __setit
   File "C:\Python26\lib\site-packages\configglue\", line 557, in save
  fp = open(fp, 'w')
 IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/.config\\enjuewemela.conf'

*** Demoing the highscores path problem:
start game
choose new game , rush
play a game.
At gameover you get a traceback similar to
    File "C:\Python26\share\enjuewemela\enjuewemela\", line 602, in game_over
   File "C:\Python26\share\enjuewemela\enjuewemela\", line 337, in save_score
  with open(fname, 'wb') as fh:
 IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/.local\\share\\enjuewemela.hs'

*** why ?
paths provided by xdg.BaseDirectory have not much sense in windows.

*** workaround patch
I will paste here the bzr diff, seems that launchpad bug tracker don't allow to attach a file
