There is a somewhat less ambitious solution now, which will all to
forget / rename / keep that location. Since this is designed to run
only once, testing is a bit involved (and I'd like to ask you for help
with that):

1. Back up your ~/.config/rkwardrc . It should contain the settings
"config version=4", and "LibraryLocations=/YOUR/HOME/.rkward/library",
otherwise, please search for those config keys, and edit their
values, accordingly.
2. Before each test, restore that backup rkwardrc to
~/.config/rkwardrc .

This mechanism is designed so that it can be expanded to perform more
"new version" startup checks, such as prompting to install R2THML,
etc., in the future.
