So it seems like we can't specify defaults that will satisfy even most people, 
let alone everyone. The best I can see us doing is implementing some sort of 
"profile" system in KDEInstallDirs that would switch the defaults wholesale by 
specifying a single argument. I don't know whether that would be worth it or 
not - depends how easy it is to implement and maintain, I guess.
