I would like to run bitlbee in normal user without the need for root to keep all of its settings and data in the user dir. The only thing that prevents that is bitlbee tries to write UNIX socket in /run/bitlbee and it's not possible to change the path without recompiling and hard set the path at configure time. Can we please have an option for specifying alternative UNIX socket path at run time?

Note that that socket is not essential so failure to create it doesn't break anything, it only emits a warning.

(Also that functionality was never used much. If at all. :-/)
