I guess it's a question of how long the other proposal takes
implementing. If just a month or two, two migration within that time
period doesn't make so much sense. If we really estimate slow progress
there, then I guess we can have users deal with the multiple migrations
and some months of small benefits from the better profiles.
Just this situation with desktop profiles has existed for as long as
desktop profile have existed, so waiting a couple months more for the
perfect solution (while avoiding multiple migrations) doesn't sound like
a bad idea to me.

I appreciate you intending to take a lead on pushing the other proposal
too.

I guess I should review the gnome subprofile soon, I assume some of our
other guys already did though.
