no, sorry, but ~/.python is wrong on linux.

there exists a standard about where things belong:

it says that configuration stuff belongs into `XDG_CONFIG_HOME`, with a fallback to `~/.config/`

i propose to add the `appdirs` module to the stdlib so that programs finally don’t have to guess and hack around this kind of things.
