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....

It's a locate-style function: it returns the path of a
conf/initialization/persitent-data file.

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?

Emacs has `locate-library', `locate-file' and `locate-data-directory'.
Perhaps `locate-user-data' would make sense.
