I can fix this in the composer, of course. Adding north arrow would
show a dialog for adding points (this dialog is used for adding
graphics like points, lines, rectangles) which would be slightly
modified for north arrows (like changing the dialog title and so).
Here, it would help me if the directory structure of the symbols is
changed so that the arrows would be located in separate directory
(basic, extra, ..., north_arrow). This way I can show the user only
the north arrow symbols. Other option is not very elegant - I would
have to find all symbols from all directories containing words arrow
or compass.
