To reiterate what was said prior in the linked support post, this patch adds the discussed XDG fall-backs for all of .bash_profile, .bash_login, .bashrc and .bash_logout. While their legacy paths are still prioritised to not subvert existing expectations, they all now have the option to be moved to an $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/bash directory without needing to be dotfiles.

The only one that does not have such a fall-back defined for it is .bash_history due to the need to preserve the existing HISTFILE default. Ideally, this would have been migrated to something like $XDG_STATE_HOME/bash/history, however users are free to set this as their HISTFILE if they so choose to.
