By doing this will at some point make it easyer to port LoadStone over to the 3rd edition phone down 
the road! They have more protected/hidden directory's. As far as that goes; using the built in file 
manager, when you are looking at things in the phone memory; You can not look at anything outside of 
the Data directory on the 3rd edition phones. On the memory card; You can see other directory's on 
the memory card but about 3 or 4 of them.

just FYI. I noted that when playing around with the 3rd edition phones with sighted help being their 
is no screen reader out at this point for them.

Thanks for your suggestion. We've been thinking of implementing this and
it'll probably be put in at some point. I think the best way to do this will
be to have another section in the settings, maybe called paths, that would
allow the user to change all the directories used by loadstone. This will
take a bit of doing but would be a good thing in the end.
