Orange environment configuration (``environ``)

This module contains some basic customization options for Orange
(for now mostly changing directories where orange settings are saved).

How it works

When this module is imported it will first load and parse a global 
configuration `orangerc.cfg` (located in the root directory of the orange
installation). Further, it will look for and try to load a user specific
configuration file located in $(HOME)/.orangerc.cfg or 
`application_dir`/orangerc.cfg where `application_dir` is a variable defined
in the global configuration file.

.. note:: in the configuration files all OS defined environment variables
    (e.g $HOME, $USER, ...) are available.

After all the parsing has taken place the select variables defined in the
configuration will be made available as top level module variables.


To change the location where settings are saved for Orange Canvas
on Windows edit the global `orangerc.cfg` file and in the
`[directories win32]` section change the `application_dir` variable:
    [directories win32]
    application_dir = D:/SharedAppData/orange/
In this way we can hard code the path instead of using the system default
(defined in the the %APPDATA variable)


The following variables are exposed as top level module members 

    Directory where Orange is installed.
    Directory where Orange Canvas is installed.

    Directory where Orange Widgets are installed.

    Directory where icons for widgets are installed.

    Directory with Orange documentation.
    Directory with example data sets.

    Directory where system-wide add-ons are installed 
    Directory where user add-ons are installed
    Directory where applications can save their data.
    Directory where Orange saves settings/data.
    Directory where Orange Canvas saves the reports.
    Directory where Orange settings are saved.
    Directory where Orange Canvas settings are saved.
    Directory where Orange Widgets settings are saved.
    Directory where :obj:`Orange.utils.serverfiles` downloads are stored.  

    If True all deprecated members in Orange 2.5 will not be available.
