That gets back to the i18n problem so is a non starter until that is
fixed IMHO.

The whole set of arguments about "discoverability" occur solely because
you picked the name for the user. If I told it what to share I don't
have to discover what secret name in a foreign script in a language I
don't speak happens to magically share files.

I know what shares files because I hit "Share files" and it prompted me,
or because I hit the "Share this directory" option on nautilus.

End of discoverability problem.
