Supporting this would likely require the structure of `_USERHOME` to
change. This would be too much work because a good chunk of code uses
`_USERHOME` directly in file paths, which is a single directory by
default. It would also affect existing language modules and other

I myself have a `~/config/` folder with all of my configs including a
`textadept/` folder that `~/.textadept/` symlinks to. Perhaps something
similar would work for you.
