[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#360304: xfce4: store settings in .xfce instead of .config

Package: xfce4
Version: 4.2.3
Severity: normal

it does not make logical sense that xfce settings are stored in the 
user's ~/.config directory...config could mean anything.  i had to do a 
search to figure out where the settings were (not that difficult, but 
nevertheless annoying).  it would make much more sense if xfce settings
were instead saved in a ~/.xfce directory as is the norm for 
practically all other Debian software.  thank you for your consideration.
