    initial v1  
    44> While this is sort of a Linux-ism, any thoughts on using XDG Base Directories (https://specifications.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-latest.html).  In this case something like `$XDG_DATA_HOME/<subdir>/`, with a default of `~/.local/share/` if the env var isn't set (`~/.local/share/tor-browser/` for example).

    6 At least in my case I don't use any kind of "desktop" environment so this kind of thing never occurs to me.  Not sure how representative I am of OpenBSD users in general, but I just use #cwm.  I never bought the whole "desktop" metaphor honestly :-).  I've also been using X windows since X10R3 so maybe my instincts aren't quite the norm.

    8 I don't see why the actual path chosen in the tor-data-in-home-dir case couldn't be whatever the group comes to consensus on.  If ~/.local/share/TorBrowser-Data is more in line with what you want that's fine by me.  I'm sure a lot of OpenBSD users *do* use a desktop env and this would be like everything else.
