I think Thiago is right that there's probably no point allowing a
relative subdir, so just
I think would be a good approach. In terms of implementation, it should
simply "expand" as if a list of standard <servicedir> had been manually
I prefer this to <servicedir xdg=true/> because an attribute shouldn't
effectively change an element into a different element.
I would name it <standard_session_bus_servicedirs/> since for example
the xdg spec is not relevant on Windows, but there may still be some
standard session bus service dirs.
