I'm not sure I see how.  xdg.el includes a lot of stuff that is not
needed in every Emacs session, whereas the changes discussed here must
be in preloaded code.  Is your suggestion to move some of the code in
xdg.el to startup.el/subr.el and leave the rest in xdg.el?  If so,
which part(s) would you suggest to move?

In general, I feel that xdg.el is currently too Freedesktop-specific,
and "needs work" if we want to make it a portable mainstream package
useful on all the supported platforms.  (There's also a strange
comment about Emacs "not having a notion of l10n/i18n", which is
simply wrong, so support for localestring could/should also be
improved.)  Patches welcome.
