Re: A Few Standard Folders [Re: Structure in $HOME]

Lots of evil edge cases though. What happens when you have folder A
called "George" which gets translated as "Giorgio", but in the same
directory is a folder *actually* called "Giorgio"? Where do you go when
the user goes to "file:///Giorgio"... Also, this takes reading every
.directory file in every subdir whenever you go to a location. I don't
know what sort of performance penalty that would have.
