That name for the variable is fine with me.  The user-init-directory
can continue to have the semantics we've used to date, and
user-data-directory will probably default to that in XEmacs.

Regarding `find-user-data-file', XEmacs distinguishes between
"locating" a file (those functions return file names), and "finding" a
file (those functions switch to a buffer visiting the file).  I forget
which your function does....  I don't have a strong feeling about
this, but Emacs makes a similar distinction with "find-library"
vs. "locate-library".  Maybe it's worth being consistent?
