Well that's surprising (and apparently undocumented), but anyway with my 
patch applied, loading of extensions behaves in exactly the same way, 
since it does not touch ui.readconfig's

         if root is None:
             root = os.path.expanduser('~')

I would not expect anyone to make use of this curious fact; the purpose 
of the patch is to be able to define an extension in .hg/hgrc.
