Why not just stick that in ~/.rpcemu also? That keeps it out of the
way... after all, if you need to be looking at the logfile you're
probably also looking at other stuff in there too ;)
Various other apps seem to dump logfiles into ~ with names
like "<app>-<PID>.log", etc. A practice I'm not fond of since it
clutters up my homedir needlessly.
Another option might just be to spit things to stderr and let them end
up in .xsession-errors (or equivalent), perhaps.
If all else fails, you could always dump the logfile stuff in /tmp with
the username/PID as part of the filename, perhaps. As long as it's
documented I don't suppose it really matters where the log ends up.
