> The following fixes and improvements were not associated with bug reports:

> via environment variable GNC_CONFIG_HOME. In addition it will automatically
> be created to avoid potential user confusion.
> • Redesign gnc-uri-utils
> • gnc_uri_get_components will now return NULL as protocol
> if the input is a normal file system path instead of a uri (it used to

> • gnc_uri_is_file_protocol ->
> • The *_protocol variants are marked as deprecated.
> • Additionally a number of local variables have been
> renamed from protocol to scheme to support this change.

> warnings at the same time...
