This is correct for Windows. It is not quite correct for Linux. Recall
the discussion about putting the claws configuration directory on an 
EncFS volume. You cannot use --alternate-config-dir on Linux or Unix if
the target volume does not support Unix Domain Sockets. Neither FAT nor
NTFS support Unix Domain Sockets.

The symbolic link workaround is limited. You cannot have multiple Claws
configurations without changing the symbolic link every time you want
to switch configurations. An --alternate-socket-dir option would
alleviate this problem.
