Please install your locate-user-data-path function, except "path" should
be changed to "file" and "data" might need to be changed to "emacs"
because: as for user-emacs-directory vs user-data-directory, I don't see
the advantage of user-data-directory: AFAIK XEmacs uses
user-init-directory, so XEmacs (in)compatibility is not the issue.
