When referring to ~/.config or ~/.local/share one should keep in mind that
these are locations specified in the freedesktop.org "base dirs" spec, so
other applications are likely to use them as well.

It is also basically the reason Akonadi things are there because it is a non-
KDE program and can't easily detect KDE's local prefix.

Is there an up-to-date KDE FAQ?

The one that comes packaged and shown in KInfoCenter is ancient. It doesn't
mention Plasma anywhere, explains how to configure aRTs, says Qt doesn't
support GIF for patent reasons...

Strangely, the introduction says the latest stable version is 4.2.1, which
shows it did get updated some time in the past five years. Of course that's
still out of date (I have KDE 4.4), but I thought it'd mention 3.5...
