The discussion about a STATE dir is at least 8 years old now:

https://wiki.debian.org/XDGBaseDirectorySpecification section "Proposal: STATE 
directory" and linked mail threads in this list.

Please, give the world a standard dir in $HOME to save state!

I found this thread because stebalien@ had the same complaint on github:
"One thing I'm really not happy about is the spec's lack of an XDG_STATE_DIR."


Never give up hope.
