+1 for this. I've also been wanting the option to have bash look in
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME for the user-level bashrc and bash_logout. It's not
much of a compatibility breaker unless you have multiple bash versions
installed and actually use more than one of them interactively (or
have stupid programs like scp that do so), in which case a symlink
should work. Bash, openssh, and gnupg are the major things I use that
still don't utilize XDG_*.

.profile should probably stay where it is under ~.
