allow IPython to run without writable home dir
get_ipython_dir() ensures that the *IPython* dir is writable, which is more relevant, but the home dir need not be writable. Some optional behaviors (e.g. `%logstart global`) will not work if the home dir is not writable, but IPython should not crash. Approximately no other operations actually depend on writing directly to $HOME.
