I don't see how these would be useful to independent, stand-alone
extensions, except for hacking the system. I only see it used by the
http interface and all its data...

> "homedir"

Could be useful.

> "cachedir"

Useful, as a makeshift "I-need-a-directory-to-write-my-stuff" interface,
but should be replaced by an API actually designed for that.

> "datadir_list"

>From the README:

"misc.datadir_list( name ): FIXME: write description ... or ditch
function if it isn't useful anymore, we have datadir and userdatadir :)"

> "action_id"

I don't know and don't understand what this does. So putting back these
two functions in the API would be retarded.
