In addition to what Karl has already said, the only applications that
I know of that would use these directories would be gnucash, or any
other binaries from ftp.gnome.org (eg, evolution, gedit). These
applications aren't that likely to be on your computer anyway I'm
guessing, so they're probably safe to remove.

In case it isn't clear, the latest (released) version of Xiphos *does*
use these directories (with the exception of .gnomesword). Deleting
them won't actually hurt anything, but they'll be recreated.
