#164: Support user directories for configuration files

Comment (by hinder):

 This breaks the Cactus convention of having everything stored under the
 Cactus tree.  Many people have more than one tree, and perhaps would like
 more than one set of simfactory options. We should support this, as well
 as perhaps supporting what you suggest.  I was thinking that we should
 actually support a PATH-type variable for looking for simfactory
 configurations.  Then it could be set to: "standard SVN simfactory:site-
 specific:user-specific".  We could also put ~/.simfactory on the path, for
 maximum flexibility.

 Another advantage of separating out the customised or additional
 configuration files is that users can manage them in version control
 systems.  This is problematic at the moment if you wanted to use, for
 example, SVN.
