This is a cleanup issue. I have been running with ~ as my desktop for a
few weeks now. The only annoying things that have been dumped there have
been ns_imap and a Java Plugin info trace once. It turns out that
applications are pretty damn respectful of the ~/ folder. Violating the
sanctity and non-clutter of the folder tends to invoke wrath, even
(particularly?) in console-based circles.
