But I dislike how XV, Guash, and now Gimp 1.1.2, drop extraeneous
.xvpics directories all about my home directory. I use Gimp to edit
images for my website, and I don't like having to delete those .xvpics
directories every time before I upload. EE has a superior scheme, IMO,
in dropping all the thumbnails from accross the system into the .ee
directory, rather than scattering them all about. Removing them is so
much easier with EE.
