We definitely need to look at this as we have recently refactored our config system.

use XDG_CONFIG_HOME if available

priority is:

$XDG/ipython if both or neither exist
$HOME/.ipython if it exists and $XDG/ipython does not exist

we are reverting this in IPython 2.0 and dropping support for XDG. See PR #4457
