I am currectly working on a port of a linux application to windows in 
which we use the xdg.BaseDirectory module. Attached you can find a small 
patch that will add support to xdg.BaseDirectory module on windows in 
which the special folders (appdata, home etc...) of the current user are 
returned using the wind32 api unless that XDG enviroment variables are set.

I really do not know if this patch will be utterly useful for many 
people but it will certainly help those that are currently using the 
module and will like to port their applications too.
