[Qgis-developer] Persistent plugin files amended by user, wiped by upgrade

I've got something rather badly wrong in qgis2web. The plugin has a
/templates folder, and users are encouraged to add their own templates.
However, a user has just rightly pointed out that because /templates is
within the plugin folder, changes are lost when upgrading the plugin to a
new version. He has therefore lost his work.

How can I solve this? Does the plugin install process have permission to
write to a user's home directory as well as to the plugin folder?
