Other ports set a default save path in base/commandLine.cpp, function  
registerDefaults(). Actually, I am not happy with the way that is  
done (esp. the UNIX code path is not good as it is), so I plan to  
revise the way we do that eventually... by keeping all code doing  
that for the various ports in one spot (using #ifdef), it's a bit  
easier to figure out how to do it properly...

Of course, it might not be possible for your port to do it this way,  
in that case feel free to tackle the issue differently :-)
