Well, USERPROFILE is the location where user specific files are
usually stored. The HOMEDRIVE / HOMEPATH construction is used _very_
seldomly, as far as I know, actually I hadn't heard of it's existance
before I discovered OpenStep.

In the near future I might even give a stab at getting the user and
system settings in the registry instead of a file. Not sure about that
yet, though.
