Thanks for the comments; I am a bit unclear how you would like to see the
current patchset change to address that.
Could you give me an example? I thought I implemented the suggestion from
your initial mail.

A couple of things that I'd like before merging all this:

I see translation commits in master, so I was assuming this worked already.
Is there anything in my patchset you think would result in a change in that

Definitely; this is something I wanted too and I will work on it next.

Other than that, I'm happy with the changes, even if the man pages are

OK, I will try to expand that too.

Either way, since the patchset is pretty large as it is, I'd love to be
able to merge the refactors/GLib port without the new user directories
feature in the meantime.
Another thing that would greatly benefit the code is porting it to GIO. I
initially didn't do that to reduce the churn and introduce a dependency on
GObject, but in retrospect I don't see why not - practically speaking
everyone shipping GLib already also ships GObject/GIO.

What do you think?
