If you want to "totally future-proof" your script, you could
also use (rephrased from

| $userinfo = posix_getpwuid(posix_getuid());
| $homedir  = $userinfo['dir'];

This will always return the home directory of the account
the script is running as.  However, if we would ever decide
to move the home directories around, you could probably not
miss the pandemonium :-).
