Hi Cor

On the Dutch list, I've never seen any user unable to perform it.
Still, it's a pity that people have to as for such a solution in the 
first place.

A user who is already on ANY mailing list has already taken more steps than
the gross majority of the claimed "25 million users" so he/she is probably
more determined and skilled than the average curious user who is only giving
LibreOffice a try.

This of course is related to the topic "LibreOffice priorities":
LibreOffice/TDF can continue to ignore the users who try and give up because
they are not worth it. You can see in AskLibO the ammount of users having
problems with 3.5.x releases and yet LibreOffice/TDF only recommends the
3.5.x branch (it takes a pretty determined person to find out that in fact
there is an older, more stable version available...)

Nice idea. Since renaming the user profile cannot be done when the suite 
itself is running, that should involve some external task.

Not necessarily. You could use the reload method used by many Open Source
programs (e.g. Firefox, Thunderbird, Chromium) were changes that can not be
performed while the program is loaded are followed by a message like
"ProgramX needs to reload for this change to apply. Reload now?"
