IPython 0.11 respects the XDG spec (.config etc.). It will only use ~/.ipython if it already exists (existing users), or on platforms where XDG is not in use (generally OSX and Windows, but also when the XDG config dir doesn't exist).

So we have picked XDG, but that's obviously not something we should pick everywhere.  The only available change I see is to force the move from ~/.ipython to XDG on Linux unless users set IPYTHON_DIR=~/.ipython, but that doesn't sound good to me.
