I agree with Danilo. I have a right to express my opinion civilly (don't
I?), but when it comes right down to it, its the maintainer's (or
erstwhile programmer's) prerogative to call the shots with his own code.
If your solution goes through (which it seems it has), then all I ask is
that the special folders go back to ~/.gnome2 so we're at least not
polluting the user's $HOME with foreign junk.
Finally, if anything I've said in this thread was taken as a flame, or
overly aggressive, then I'd like to apologize publicly (or privately).
Its not my intention to stress-out the kind people who write my desktop.
