Re: Plasma 5: no more KDEHOME?

On Jessie, a "export" in a script within /usr/env would take care of the issue. What about stretch?
Would a script called /usr/env/kdedirs.sh, containing:

export   XDG_DATA_HOME=~/.local.stretch/share
export XDG_CONFIG_HOME=~/.config.stretch
export  XDG_CACHE_HOME=~/.cache.stretch

...would fit the bill? Would that be the proper way to go with stretch?

Don't forget about (at least, maybe there's more) ~/.cache/ and ~/.local/
