Follow XDG directory specification

Hello, I would like the developers of the Burp Suite to consider implementing XDG directory specification in order to remove unnecessary $HOME clutter. By storing config, cache and user data under $XDG_CONFIG_HOME $XDG_CACHE_HOME and $XDG_DATA_HOME ($HOME/.config | $HOME/.cache | $HOME/.local/share by default) and creating a fallback to $HOME if XDG directories are not present, you allow users to properly manage their dotfiles and give them any choice on whether to follow the already widely used standard or not. This does not takes a lot of work codewise and can be useful to a lot of people. For information regarding the XDG specs follow the below link: https://specifications.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-latest.html Thank you in advance, Bartosz
