Yes, I think this will break a whole lot of folks who have gotten into
the "bad" habit already with c:/Users/$Username/.gimp-x.x while OSX
just went from .gimp-x.x to ~/Library/Application Support/gimp-x.x to
~/Library/GIMP/x.x back to ~/Library/Application Support/gimp-x.x.

Can't we simply make this a user configuration as it used to be before
where one could select the user directory?

Of course, if the above will be the rule, at least publicize it in advance?
