We can try a simple rename and fallback if there's any error. We could
mention this briefly in the man page.

You're right it should be getenv ("HOME") ?: "/".

Sure. My goal was to have any nonexisting parent directories created as
easily as possible and I wasn't aware of anything besides `mkdir -p`.
Should we not bother creating nonexisting parent directories?

Ok.

Here I could mention the possibility of a rename when using a client
cache at the old location.

That's a good idea for a future patch, maybe separate client and server
tests into two files (to the extent that they can be separated).

Ok I'll include that.
