It generally looks sensible for the Linux side of things. For my apps
then I've just used the built-in .Net default paths.
The only comments/questions I'd have are:
1) For the sake of tidiness (reducing folders at a given level on a
user's machine) would it not be better to use "MonoDevelop/version"
rather than "MonoDevelop-version"? That way the user always gets just
one MD folder
2) Would it be possible to include a forced migration, in case the first
one failed or generally didn't include everything?
