Migrate everything (the new logic and all the last improvements) is too
much. Mostly because I don't have time and because it is not a dead or
alive bug. In fact, it was never before and people never complained ;)
What you COULD do if you want is to just do this:

Why it only searches in the image folder?


    "First, we look at image folder,
    then we look at preferences folder,
    and finally at general preferences folder "

    ^  OrderedCollection new
        add: [ self lookInImageDirectory ];
        add: [self lookInPreferencesFolder ];
        add: [self lookInGeneralPreferencesFolder ];

it should check there (the version that is in 1.4). The only reason this
version would stop searching in other places is if it did find something.
When it finds something, it stops searching (in 2.0 it contiues and
executes all the ones that are found).

given that the initial use case was for working in many fresh
