Something that could help in this matter is to do something similar to what
Aranym does when reading/writing paths: use symbolic names. In Aranym, every
path that is not absolute is treated as relative to the config directory. A
leading tilde is expanded to the users home directory, a leading "*" is
replaced by the data directory etc. That avoids having absolute paths in the
config file in most cases.
