rjvbb added a comment.

  No, it went beyond that: the original underlying principle was "don't assume or hardcode /usr/local anywhere, use whatever install prefix the user specified".
  The default location for new projects used by the cmake plugin is a bit in a category of its own as evident from early feedback on my patch, which is why I now propose NOT to set any default in the code.
  Adding cmake option for this could be of interest but I think it would be even better to add a (toplevel or session-specific) configuration option so the user can indicate where new projects should be installed. That could go right into the Settings/Projects pane, under the "Projects base directory" setting.
  Would be a different diff though.
