I didn't read it all. The thread was broken in several pieces on the web

Now that I have read the whole thread, the proposal to change defaults
in file selectors instead of creating directories has already been 
suggested. I personally agree much more to that approach than with 
an automatic creation of directories.


Something I didn't exactly understood is how and when exactly those
directories are to be created (in the advocated approach, that I don't 
like ;-). And what about other window managers (fluxbox, icewm...)?
