Hmmm ... per default sqlite is used. I also doubt that many WindowsXXX
users will install a mysql or postgresql database but take the default
sqlite (file) database. For Linux users it's daily business to search
for configuration or additional files inside of ~/.gnubg/, because most
applications put the individual stuff in the home directories.

For a Windows user it's more common to chose a path or use the
application directory (or a sub of it).

Just my 2c.
