  1. you misread the spec. the config files *do* belong under ~/.config as already stated elsewhere. but one might consider putting the recent file locations and histories into ~/.local/share if one really wants to.
  2. you'll still have to carry over backwards compatibility code for that. are you sure it is worth cluttering up the code?

You are right. I've fixed description.

I believe that one function (or two) is not a large clutter.

  1. Store options of all dialogs (as possible) in config (#1572, #1874)

...only when auto_save_setup is set (take a look at #1663 for clarification). This way one can save his preferred defaults (case-sensitiveness, regexps, etc.)
