You do know that ~/.local is for user application data and not
application user data? Yes they sound almost like the same thing, but
there is a very big difference between firefox plugins/evolution filters
and emails/calendar events.

Because hiding user data is cool and making backups impossible is
awesome.

If you're planning on separating out the indexing (a good move) then why
not just park emails in ~/Documents/Email in a list of maildirs?
