Just put them compile time configurable and leave it up to the
distro makers to decide where they should be. /etc and /var are
sensible defaults imho. You perhaps shouldn't create etc subdir
if we have only one cfg file.

Well, you are wrong, in the sense that for two zeroes, !(0>0)
is true ;) . To put it more plainly, I'm not interested in working
on gnunet-gtk at the moment. I admit its faults, of course.
but most of the problems are too evasive, or don't appear
on my system, or are relatively unimportant (in the current
context - but of course its a chicken/egg problem, if the
gui sucks, the system might look bad, but if there's
nothing in the network, what need for awesome gui?). When I
enhanced the GUI some time back, the reasons were both to make
it more reasonable and to get a bit of whiff of how the gnunet
clients work. But actually I've always hoped that someone who
really knows gui coding would take it from there. A good sign of
healthy system would of course be the mushrooming of third-party
independent clients and GUIs, but both remain yet to come.

ps. I do have some non-zero priority for getting rid of
the 300mb lookup database (its mostly unnecessary layer now
that we have the bloom filters), but I wouldn't oppose if
someone gets to it first. ;)
