(I will reply to your other points separately, this is a bit of a tangent.)

That's the old default, so if you don't use XDG this code will behave
exactly as before.  So this is a step forward on GNU/Linux, and
everyone else is unaffected (unless they have specifically opted in).

We could use something more reasonable than "~/pics" of course, which
just seems to be what someone happened to be using at some point.

I suggest "~/Pictures", which is at least used by XDG.
