Better use remember-data-directory since there is remember-data-file?

The docstring needs an update.

The first line of the docstring should be a sentence.
You can use M-x checkdoc RET to catch those docstring errors.

Looks okay to me -- can you provide the change as a patch against
current remember.el?
