These should not be shipped. In Debian we generate these files at
install time. Take a look at python-support

The user's home directory isn't always /home/$user/ so don't hard-code
that, use python's os.path.expanduser function.
Also check out this FreeDesktop spec:

MacOS uses another scheme.
Some details about MacOS/Windows are here:

Either way is possible. The latter would be preferrable, the team
seems a bit understaffed at the moment. Even better would be if you're
interested in helping with other packages too.
