Are you saying that I just got lucky because I happen to be subscribed to this mailing list, but it's ok if other people have to suffer?
For the records, I don't like any of the suggested "default" paths.
Just make this a configuration option. For example, an environment variable, or so, then everybody can choose their own preferred name.
...and please make this empty by default, so it doesn't mess up anything unless I ask it to do so...
