I tried to implement it, see the attached patch. Unfortunately, it does
not work because it do the migration in the second run and it uses the
same directory name in $HOME/.config like in used in $HOME => it finds
the new clean configuration from the first run and migrates it into

=> we should apply this patch after we update the version of the config
directory or after we change another name.

Well, we might need something similar to fix problem with the set

It is too late for me to continue now.

Good night,
