Why is init-file-user and -u such a big furball? Both are
atavisms from teh dark ages, and the docstring specifically
mentions .emacs so there's no reason it _has_ to work with
.xemacs, PACKAGEPATH and all that. Why can't it just be left
alone, working imperfectly, just it does now?
Every Real Programmer has within him/herself the insatiable need to
hack code. It's like a hamster's excercize wheel, except it's more
prone to catching fire and drawing the attention of other hamps^H^H^H^Hprogrammers...
