I think it's generally good policy to avoid hardcoding file names.  The
default is unchanged, so the feature still works automatically across
projects unless you change it.  People who care enough about changing
the default presumably know what they are doing (presumably, they want
to have a different file name for some reasons of their own, and this
change lets them do that without redefining the functions).
