I don't even remember this being discussed.

What about startup.el?  If HOME _is_ set, we still try to load _emacs
if there's no .emacs there.

If you mean remove this from the manual only as a deprecation measure,
then we probably should introduce it into w32.c where we check for
C:/.emacs.  However, you mentioned discussions, so perhaps there are
valid technical reasons not to do that which I'm not aware of.
