+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Application.UserAppDataPath and LocalUserAppDataPath need to use subfolders
+To match .NET semantics, Application.UserAppDataPath and
+Application.LocalUserAppDataPath need to return paths that are specific to
+the application being run.  Right now (in the SVN repository) they just
+return ~/.config and ~/.local/share. 
+From the documentation:
+  If a path does not exist, one is created in the following format:
+  Base Path\ CompanyName\ ProductName\ ProductVersion 
+All of those properties are already implemented, so this should be easy to
+We need this so that multiple applications don't clobber each other's
+configuration files.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+[assembly: AssemblyCompany("Ximian")]
+[assembly: AssemblyProduct("TestMono")]
+[assembly: AssemblyVersion("")]
+Actual Results:
+Expected Results:
+How often does this happen? 
+Every time.
