Re:very Windows-like

Where does it put the configuration files? In the package directory too? What about libraries? One way or another, you either have files outside the package directory or every time you install a package in a different location you have to manually copy over the configuration files (except those in your home, obviously). Having one directory per program was actually what I meant when I said it was very Windows-like.

Actually, this makes me think of something else: What about the config files in home? How are those handled if you install multiple (possibly incompatible, otherwise there wouldn't be much sense in installing two versions) versions of a program?
