We've tried wxStandardPaths but it doesn't seem to work correctly on osx
bundles. Maybe the plugin path(s) wont be as problematic as the other
paths but I wouldn't count on it. You can run standard paths from the
Python console so maybe you can get one of the OSX devs to run the
Pcbnew python console and confirm the results of the various
wxStandardPath functions.
