in reply to What's the best way to convert a non interpolated single-quoted string into an interpolated double-quoted string?

I would simply store the relative "path" part and leave the $ENV{HOME}/ out completely. Then, after you parse the XML file you can prepend the value of $ENV{HOME}, perhaps with a rule that only if the value is relative and not absolute.

    Yes I wanted the user to be able to change the path afterwards through some specific pref pane without being enclosed at $HOME, your solution might do it well.
