Agreed. I was under the impression that -u was followed by an arbitrary
directory, but now I recall that it expects an user name. This is no
alternative to setting emacs-user-directory at all.

It was after John Wiegley mentioned that you can set
user-emacs-directory to achieve the same effect, which right now it is
not correct.
