  * explain global cache a little more clearly

  * refactor get_global, make it more cross-platform
  get_global fetches global preferences from the user's ~/.darcs directory.
  This patch uses the more portable getAppUserDataDirectory, so global
  prefs will work on windows without requiring a HOME environment
  variable, and will be stored in the standard windows app data dir
  (eg C:/Documents And Settings/user/Application Data/darcs).
  Cf http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/ticket/1838 .
  It also reduces the use of error-hiding catchall.
