Re: [Sc-devel] [linux] configurable user directory?

Is this where the plugins and synthdefs folders is supposed to go?
and the default place to look for Server.program?

If so, whats wrong with the previous solution, where all this was part
of a -d switch at startup (and customizable as a simple variable
'sclang-runtime-directory' in emacs)?

Good apps leave as much as possible of these settings customizable at
runtime, or at least wait till the apps gets started.
