hmm, yes, if a user wants to run the tests then having the .denemo-xxx
location fixed at the user's home directory is a problem.
I think your first suggestion of a command line flag to choose where to
find .denemo-xxx might be good - I have used a separate, clean, user for
this, but it sounds like you need to run the tests as part of your
install process, so that they have to be run as your own user. I wonder
what other projects do?
