my patch will still allow all things we do today, it will just in addition allow to put
things in resources and default to do so, which makes sense on any deployment style.

Even for the normal XDG way, it just makes sense to bundle the ui stuff in the matching libraries,
there is no benefit by installing them as extra files, the user is still able to overwrite
them with local copies (like the configure toolbar dialog will create).
