XEmacs doesn't enforce it (we can't without imposing a gratuitous
incompatibility, since until now Emacs hasn't really had the concept),
but the variable `user-init-directory' is available to any library
that wants an Emacs-specific place to put things.  This is normally
initialized to "~/.xemacs" by startup.el.
