Cool, my memory was wrong about this! Or alternatively, it might be that the
final implementation of the config file handling did not become what I first
had planned since the manual has documented the behavior I described since
added in 2012:

Hopefully improved in <https://github.com/ccache/ccache/commit/a0c3aa52>.

It was just a tongue-in-cheek jab at your tongue-in-cheek characterization of
XDG. I have nothing in particular against not using systemd, but I find it
convenient that it has become the norm (and as a Debian developer I didn't vote
against choosing systemd). Let's stop here.
