Yes, it's true, using yyyy-mm-dd-description it's a /little/ waste of
space, but this way your directory it's "portable": just copy it on a
CD, and you don't need to change anything. And even if you delete it
accidentally, you can restore it from backup without the risk of
changing its name and loosing informations in digikam database (you
know, if digikam 0.9.* don't find a directory, it asks you to delete its
data from the database...).

Maybe I'm paranoic, but I prefer a little redundancy, to feel more
