OK. Then perhaps I misunderstood the discussion here.

It is a royal pain putting them into a hidden directory and managing them there. Many Mac users do not know how to access such hidden directories. Even it you do, you cannot use the finder to do so without altering all hidden directories with a script. You can access such directories in the GUI file systems of linux systems I've used.
