For Windows applications, yes, but Emacs has a GNU/Unix heritage,
where different applications often share config files, so it makes
more sense to put these directly in appdata. Another change in CVS
Emacs is that it looks for .emacs in ~/.emacs.d/, so if you prefer
Emacs to keep its files in its own subdirectory, then you can put your
.emacs there.
