I didn't look at the patches (sorry), but I'll comment anyway--as long as it 
is just standardizing ~/.local/bin as the *default* user-specific bin 
directory, I have no objection.

But, I move all user specific configuration and similar files completely out of 
~/ to a (non-standard named) top level directory, e.g., /<user>/local/bin.  

And, in general, I keep those directories visible, not hidden.
