I think this /data business is nonsense. The activity should be given
a path at startup, and it should only ever attempt to work with known
directories under that path (such as 'conf', 'tmp', 'data'). That
behavior will work with or without Rainbow, and is the right thing to
do anyway; hard-coding paths outside of the activity's own space is
clearly not a good idea in any scenario.
