The good folks at LC haven't found it neccesary to allow more than a
handful of folderIdentifiers for linux. And in spite of what the
documentation says, the result is *not* set to "folder not found" when a
non-supported or nonexistent folderIdentifier is specified - it's just
empty, which is somewhat less useful.
I default saving preferences files to the directory where the saving
stack lives, and normally that's my user Plugins folder, and I use the
revEnvironmentUserPluginsPath() function to get those.
