I haven't read the Apple docs about this yet, but I plan on it.  But 
there are two reasons not to use "Application Support".

1) its looong!
2) abstractions currently can not be loaded from a path that has a 
space in it.

But Apple might have some compelling reasons to use it, and eventually, 
abstractions will be able to be loaded from paths with spaces.
