Quoting the basedir spec:
" If $XDG_DATA_DIRS is either not set or empty, a value equal to
/usr/local/share/:/usr/share/ should be used. "
The phrasing "not set or empty" is used for all the defaults. I think
this should be just "not set". Because I want to be able to turn off the
defaults (for example for testing purposes); to set the var to an empty
string seems the logical way to do this.
Thus I propose:
when var is not set the defaults are used
when var set but empty, use empty var
