Base dir spec

We were in development freeze for a 4.2 alpha release, but this has temporarily been postponed for Olivier to add support for the new XOrg Composite extension (dropshadows!).

We took the opportunity to convert all Xfce modules to use the freedesktop.org Base Dir Spec to look up their files. Basically this means user configuration files will now be in ~/.config/xfce4/.

The transition isn’t complete yet, but we’re getting there. I do hope more projects will start to use this spec.
