Understood. In the larger scheme of things, I think this qualifies as a 'me
too', so hopefully we can quell the flow of similar such messages by simply
stating that this sentiment is now 'registered' with the list and saved in
the email archive. I believe there are 'big plans' for setup moving forward
and it would surprise me if keeping the download directory tidy is not one of
them. However, I will state what's probably obvious to everyone by now -
patches are welcome! :-)
