I've renamed to `ask-about-user-init-file-migration-p'.

Depends on the user: That's why we ask. (I answered "yes".)
Back then, it was mainly for compatibility with older XEmacsen where the
code from the init file would still work.

You did see the "-" in front of that line, didn't you? :-)

* startup.el (ask-about-user-init-file-migration-p): Factored out
(migrate-user-init-file): Don't do a backup of ~/.emacs anymore.
Instead, make only a manual adjustment of the file, if at all,
i.e. don't go through customize magic anymore.
(unmigrate-user-init-file): Don't use customize to set
(set-load-home-init-file): Add; performs the modification
previously done through customize.
(unmigrate-user-init-file): Use `set-load-home-init-file' instead
(command-line-1): Only wait for the first event if we're not going
to ask about migration.
Cheers =8-} Mike
