Re: [Bug-gnuzilla] Suggestion: .gnuzilla/icecat/ instead of .mozilla/ice

User-agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Icedove/38.8.0

Similarly, GNU has decided to put IceCat in a directory called icecat
(instead of firefox). However, this is a half-measure since icecat is in
the parent directory .mozilla.

To summarize, we already have:

~/.thunderbird -> ~/.icedove
~/.mozilla/firefox -> ~/.mozilla/icecat

The proposal is to go all the way and make:

~/.mozilla/icecat -> ~/.gnuzilla/icecat
