Follow-up Comment #13, bug #55855 (project octave):

Ok, I see I was reading the XDG_CONFIG_HOME thing backwards. I think it would
help to comment that, something like "Look for settings in the legacy
qt-settings file, but only if XDG_CONFIG_HOME is not set". That would help
explain why settings may not migrate for some particular user.

For the copying keys, I was really looking for something like
"m_default_settings->merge (other_qsettings_object)", but there doesn't seem
to be any method for copying or merging one QSettings into another. I thought
that would be safer than directly editing the file on disk. How safe is
QSettings when the .ini file is changed under it?
