How about support XDG dir structure

Fix Released

Bug Description

Instead of useing ~/.onboard, put config files to
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/signon, cache files to $XDG_CACHE_HOME/signon, data
files to $XDG_DATA_HOME, like the other applications do.

The default fallbacks are:
 $XDG_CACHE_HOME -> $HOME/.cache
 $XDG_CONFIG_HOME -> $HOME/.config
 $XDG_DATA_HOME -> $HOME/.local/share

example: glib contain functions like g_get_user_config_dir(),

I really hope you can implement this change, it would make the home dir
cleaner, and user can delete all application's cache files or config
files or data files easily.

Yes, thanks for the reminder. I think we should do this eventually. I've had it on my list for a while, but haven't come around working on it yet. The spec is her, btw.:
