Make sync agent be freedesktop XDG compliant

It’d be great if y’all could make the odrive-agent be XDG compliant and then include that in the instructions (it might already be for all I know).

One thing that gets on my nerves is hidden files and folders cluttering my home directory. The XDG system is explicitly designed to prevent that.

See the official spec here: https://specifications.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-latest.html
and the more plain-word version on the Arch wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/XDG_Base_Directory

Hi @jrwrigh.iii,
Thanks for the request. We don’t have plans to change the current configuration structure, but I have made sure the product team has seen your post.
