I don't think we create the ~/.config directory.  We just check if its
emacs subdirectory exists.

Interesting. I certainly never created it myself. When I get back home I will remove my $HOME/.emacs.d directory and restart Emacs in an attempt to recreate it.

Assuming my description of the events is accurate (I may have missed something), there really should be no such directory created, yes?
