It would be great if you could support XDG Base Directories in your mpd.conf file.
I have the following configuration:

pid_file "$XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/1000/mpd/pid"
db_file "$XDG_DATA_DIR/mpd/mpd.db"
state_file "$XDG_DATA_DIR/mpd/mpdstate"
playlist_directory "$XDG_DATA_DIR/mpd/playlists"
music_directory "$HOME/rips/"

but when I try to use it I get:

exception: Invalid path at line 3:
exception: nested: not an absolute path: $XDG_RUNTIME_DIR/1000/mpd/pid

Do you want MPD to expand environment variable references, or do you want MPD to support XDG?

It should expand XDG environment variables
