How does this help?  Because I have just 2 lines in the $HOME/.emacs

(setq user-emacs-directory "c:/gnu/initfiles/.emacs.d/" )
(load-file "c:/gnu/initfiles/.emacs")

And in the c:/gnu/initfiles/.emacs file I hard coded paths like

(load-file "c:/gnu/initfiles/.text_config.el")
(load-file "c:/gnu/initfiles/.ido_config.el")
(load-file "c:/gnu/initfiles/.ac_config.el")
(load-file "c:/gnu/initfiles/.r_ess_config.el")
(load-file "c:/gnu/initfiles/.cygwin_config.el")
(load-file "c:/gnu/initfiles/.uniq_config.el")
(load-file "c:/gnu/initfiles/.smex_config.el")

I get it that .sh_history, .smex_history and other .history*
files used/created by various packages will be still created in
$HOME/.emacs but those are fairly transient stuff aren't they?
