        OS/Version: Linux

          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Medium

Personally, I allways liked structural, neat and clean applications. Not only
in design, architectural and other cases, but also in such things like storage
of config files. It is really not good when application makes a dump of .*
files/folders in your home directory. It would be MUCH better to have a .xfce
directory in home, instead of .cache, .config, .themes and probably others.
User could allways know, that it is enought to copy/backup one directory on
some system changes. They could allways know, that they could find all configs
in a one, .xfce, directory and go to modify them. And finally, they could see
some of cleanness when typing ls -la ~.
It is more political decision, rather than technicall, and of course, it is
only an XFce team prerogative. Please consider this.
