Hundreds of "hidden" dot files are ugly for users, as they regularily
show up in all kinds of desktop apps file open/browse boxes. Hence the
guys at freedesktop.org recommended to adopt ageneral $HOME/.config/
directory collecting all configuration and var stuff.

So I ask you to make spamprobe use ~/.config/spamprobe/ in favour
of ~/.spamprobe/ whenever it exists (= support for both). Some
users have a ~/.rc/ directory - or me uses a $HOME/etc/ - but both
are symlinks to $HOME/.config/ anyhow.

(Uh, in a hurry, I have to send such a request to the authors of all
my other favourite apps... ;)

    I'll see if I can do this in a future release.
