Config on Windows should go into APPDATA not USERPROFILE/HOME, on macOS it should go to "$HOME/Library/Application Support" and on Linux $XDG_CONFIG_HOME or $HOME/.config. So using using HOME on all platforms for config is not what those platforms recommend, though I understand why it's still done this way by many tools.

What about supporting a MYFANCYTOOL_CONFIG_DIR env var that the user can override? That's what I do for example.
