Easy enough, will do for 0.10

Done in r4148, updated the ticket to better reflect what this does: applies to both command line and config files.

Briefly tested with:

xpra start :10 '--socket-dir=/home/$USER'

Which places the socket in "$HOME" instead of "$HOME/.xpra".

Please close this ticket if this works for you.
