Hi Mechtilde, all,

well, this is surely not an easy decision to make - but there's
definitely a way to have LibO use a clean user dir, if you need it: 


So if we can agree that migrating user configuration is a sensible
thing for the majority of the users, we should default to that -
and fix all bugs that make this experience a bad one (including a
prune of the 2.x migration from known-bad things - I need your help
here, Mechtilde, you have a fancy ooo2 dir, with stuff I don't

Having less options, and not hiding a sensible feature like config
migration away in a menu, is generally a good thing, I guess.
