In perlpsyc (Net::PSYC::Storage.pm to be exact) we have started using certain standard files and environment variables to retrieve the UNIs of known people, including the user. The ~ tilde character stands for the home directory of the user, which under unix is kept in the environment variable $HOME. Other operating systems have other ways of defining where the home directory for user settings is, and a similar mechanism to unix environment variables.
uni = `cat ~/.psyc/me`statement in a shell script is valid.
Each line of the file may either be a comment (with a leading # sign), or a whitespace-seperated format of
<UNI> <pass>with the first matching line being the preferred UNI.
If neither any of the environment variables nor the files are available, you may use $IRCNICK or $USER as a nickname, or even the hostname $HOST for root or daemon processes.

Or we may want to store this type of information in XML to make it more accessible to non-PSYC applications. Maybe we will like to keep all of these formats available at once.
