Re: GNUstep directory in userhome

NSUserDefaults.m:
/* User's Defaults database */
static NSString *GNU_UserDefaultsPrefix = @"GNUstep";
static NSString *GNU_UserDefaultsDatabase = @".GNUstepDefaults";
static NSString *GNU_UserDefaultsDatabaseLock = @".GNUstepUDLock";

Would it be possible, to make the location of the defaults database
variable? Why doesn't NSUserDefaults read the environment variable
GNUSTEP_USER_ROOT?
