Steve is correct, I created a tinyproxy user for my tinyproxy service,
and generated a profile to reflect that. I don't think tinyproxy does
anything useful with its home directory in my configuration, but it
can be configured to give back per-error-code HTML pages with variable
interpolation for 301, 302, .. 403, 404, ... and so forth. Storing
those pages in its home directory would make sense.
