    * Lots of places hard-code .emacs.d, some use _emacs_d, and one uses
      convert-standard-filename.  My patch uses option #2 but maybe
      convert-standard-filename is better?

What is crucial is that all uses of this directory operate compatibly.
They should all do what `convert-standard-filename' would do.

It is not crucial that they do this by calling
`convert-standard-filename', and emacsclient can't do that.  But it
would be nice if they do call `convert-standard-filename' whenever
that is feasible.

    * I wasn't sure what to do about the doc strings and the Texinfo.
      Should they all mention `user-emacs-directory'?  Or just leave them
      as-is, mentioning ~.emacs.d/, and let the reader figure it out?

emacsclient.c won't be able to use `user-emacs-directory'
just as it won't be able to call `convert-standard-filename'.
