Actually, the symlink approach has some drawbacks that the gconf
solution doesn't have:
 - symlinks will have an arrow icon in Nautilus, which is not very
 - If the user makes a search (for example using gnome-search-tool), and
finds some files in ~/.folders/documents, won't she be surprised to find
the file here instead of ~/Documentos ? She might even think that this
is a lost copy, and just delete it, thus losing the documents and having
a broken link (~/Documentos will point to the missing
 - More importantly, if you remove a symlink, the content of the real
folder remains, and in the case of ~/Documents it can be a lot of data.

All of those problems would be solved by the gconf approach because you
would have exactly one folder in each case, instead of two.
