Ideally, DATA should only be written to when installing software. The user
should only have to backup CONFIG. Or at least, that was my impression.
The spec doesn't actually say what they're for ;-)
(of course, Override.xml is a config file that goes in DATA, but that's a
manual override for something you shouldn't really have to change. I may
get MIME-Editor to symlink into CONFIG)
