Location for user installed plugin libraries and icons

Hi List,
   I am working on a user driven plugin management process for an application which is installed via a 'deb' file. The application is installed using 'root' privileges, but the plugins need to be installable by the user without root privileges. The plugins will consist of libs, icons, etc. that are used to 'run' the plugin and user updateable config files used to 'control' the plugin.

   If the plugin was installed by a 'deb' file it would put libs and supplied icons in a system area, i.e. /usr or /usr/local, and the updateable config files in a user writeable area, i.e. $HOME/.<application>/. What would be a suitable location for the libs, icons, etc. for the user installed plugin?

Many thanks
