The default directory is determined with "xdg-user-dir DOCUMENTS". One
could change it by editing ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs . In the beginning
we had a control panel applet to configure the directory, but we thought
it wasn't a good idea so we removed it.

Anyway, we're probably going to remove this feature because we don't
have gnome in the first place.
