Well, in fact I said that the function does not return a directory,
and that's true, it returns a path. However, sometimes that path is a
directory name, as when a module uses it to construct a directory to
put temporary files.

So, following your suggestion it'd be more like
`locate-emacs-data-path'. Which I dislike, because we're insisting on
Emacs (which I think we can assume) and we're neglecting the user.
`locate-user-data-path' seems more to the point.

But at this point, I just want to commit it. Please, choose one.
