How about making it simply ~/.john/johnny.conf (all-lowercase) or
~/.john/gui.conf (ditto)?  John the Ripper may already create ~/.john if
it is installed system-wide, we can just reuse this directory if present
or create it if not.

... In fact, why the .conf suffix?  Does this file use the same human
friendly syntax that john.conf uses?  If so, this may be OK (although
having the file overwritten by the GUI might be unexpected).  Otherwise,
we need to call it something else - e.g., ~/.john/gui.dat.
