This idea is from a Debian user .
What do you think of moving the > 2 GB db to $HOME/.cache/bitcoin and
leaving the wallet and other config files in $HOME/.bitcoin? This is
so backups can skip the .cache directory and the proposal follows the
freedesktop.org XDG Base Directory Specification . Personal
info/settings stays in .bitcoin/ and everything that can be rebuilt
goes to .cache/bitcoin/ I know users can do a work around and set it
up themselves with symlinks, but interested in what you guys think.
