 Mono isn't limited to desktop environments.  The ".local/share" part
 should not be unconditionally returned.

+I know it isn't limited to desktop environments, but I am unaware of
+any other specification that deals with the paths of generic
+directories.  I would be perfectly happy using a more accurate one, if
+it exists.  In the absence of one, I see no harm in following this one.
+"The ".local/share" part should not be unconditionally returned."
+By this do you mean that it should create the directory if it does not
+exist before returning the path?  I'm not sure that helps, because the
+user of this method will still need to try/catch before performing any
+actions with it anyways.  But I can change it to do so if this is what
+you mean.
