path(s) containing registrations on disk.
When called without any argument returns the root directory that
will be inspected for extra registrations. You can put a sub-folder

Note that this folder will always be the same place on a machine i.e. this
defines a consistent, persistent location on disk to store data across
sessions. You can modify the location of this folder by editing the
R_USER_DATA_DIR environment variable. While this is not recommended
on a personal machine, it may be necessary on a server. See
rappdirs::user_data_dir for details.
When called with a url, a SHA1 hash will be calculated for the URL and appended to the basepath. This should ensure that locations derived from different URLs do not clash.
