Uh, no. That was recently discussed wrt to default donwloads location,
but let me repeat that once again: Desktop is *my* workplace, and
trespassers will be shot. No exceptions. Regardless of how app gets hold
of my Desktop, there is absolutely NO possibility of it touching my
files there, unless that's explicitly requested by me in person.
