After reading some comments from you and others on the list, it seems
like the home directory in Unix does indeed map well to the Windows
home directory.  Various well-known folders are stored there, and
messing with them would cause trouble.

The right solution might be to ship applications that have been
enhanced to store things in the desktop directory (this is the reason
why I did the gmc/nautilus patches, so that files you download with
Mozilla would show up on the desktop after you download them).
