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 
undocumented (http://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=16189) 
revEnvironmentUserPluginsPath() function to get those.
