I say we prompt. After all, if you are downloading source, I'm very likely
going to want to know where you are putting that source. We could remember
the parent folder the first time they save source (make the config variable)
and suggest that location the second time they do it. That would be a
(We could even remind them they are free to hack on it, then reload).
