[refpolicy] [PATCH/RFC 0/4] Introduce XDG type definitions

This patchset introduces a new module called "xdg".

The purpose of this module is to support the XDG locations as mentioned in
the XDG Base Directory Specification [1] by introducing three types
(xdg_data_home_t, xdg_config_home_t and xdg_cache_home_t) with the related
interfaces for dealing with those types.

Within the patch, there are also a few users identified. Most of the "real"
users will come with a more thorough "let me run all applications that have
access to the user home files" investigation, because the XDG locations are
previously just user_home_t types.

However, before doing that investigation, I'm first presenting the module
and its interfaces for feedback gathering.
