 "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.

+Returning a directory that doesn't exist would be bad, yes.
+But the part about unconditionally returning the freedesktop fallback
+is that in !desktop situations I think $HOME would be a better choice.
