> 1) Adopt XDG Folders spec for Photos as default value

We are getting the default photos folder from KDE/Qt libs. That should be XDG
compliant. If not, it's the fault of said libraries or the distro.

> 2) Just ask "Where do you keep you Photos?"

So you make the point that "store" implies a future action only, whereas "keep"
implies past, present and future action. I am not a native speaker so I cannot
comment on such language subtleties.

> 3) Don't ask anything about the db and drop it in the photos dir.

It doesn't work for network storage, and we cannot reliably detect an entered
location is network storage.

> 4) Wait for Nepomuk to understand XDG Folders ;)

Don't know which implications this would have for digikam.

There are some use cases where the current, very simple import dialog falls
short. Most obvious is that you can't add multiple locations here but have to
enter setup later. Second is that db location could be offered as a choice in
a) Same location as one storage dir b) inside ~/.kde c) other location. Third
is that this could be a multi-step wizard instead a one-page dialog.
