a) you asked a feature
b) I said that I don't like it
c) You told that the feature is useful for new users
d) I explaied why I dont like the feature
e) You said that feature can be disabled by default
f) I said that then the feature is uselesss for new user.

If an user begins using a new program he/she uses it with default settings
until he/she dares to change some settings.
New questionable feature what is disabled by default will be newer used by
new users. It may be found useful by some experienced users.

As you see there is a button what user should press when he/she wants a new
directory. This is *explict demand*.

Cinelerra can create a directory if you ask. This feature has been there
from the very beginning.
