When ~/.local/lib was chosen for the user directory, the BaseDir Spec
was given as prior example. Why not go the full way and follow the spec?
The config file could be $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/python/distutils, with
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME defaulting to ~/.config.

freedesktop.org-approved file formats too; the part of the code that
deals with paths would make a useful addition to the stdlib, as more and
more applications follow the spec)
