How about support XDG dir structure

Online Accounts: Sign-on daemon

Bug Description

Instead of useing ~/.signon, put config files to $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/signon, cache files to $XDG_CACHE_HOME/signon, data files to $XDG_DATA_HOME, like the other applications do.

The default fallbacks are:
 $XDG_CACHE_HOME -> $HOME/.cache
 $XDG_CONFIG_HOME -> $HOME/.config
 $XDG_DATA_HOME -> $HOME/.local/share

example: glib contain functions like g_get_user_config_dir(), g_get_user_cache_dir().

I really hope you can implement this change, it would make the home dir cleaner, and user can delete all application's cache files or config files or data files easily.
