Dear all,

I use (at least) 3 versions of emacs on one computer, one from the
Debian-package, the newer one from here and the snapshot from
They tend to have different customizable variables (and others).

So I have these variables set in my (early-)init.el:

(setq emacs-name "emacs"
emacs-major-minor-version (format "%d.%d" emacs-major-version
     user-emacs-directory (concat "~/.etc/" emacs-name "/"

Maybe not the most elegant way but this works for me to distinguish
these versions.

Would it be good, if the user-emacs-directory not only becomes
"per-user Emacs-specific"
but also
"per-user per-emacs-version Emacs-specific"
in a similar way? (as an example: gimp does it likewise.-)

Thanks for thinking about this.
