In the name of semantics I do prefer the Zim approach, but I can
understand how less technical users might prefer a word-processor
approach. This is something to thing about.

I will try to mention those on Tomboy discussions, of which there are many.

I will file a bug on this. Is there any technical reason why Zim
cannot chose good defaults and let the user override them in the
preferences afterwards? Even if files have to be moved, that can be
handled within Zim (or not, as Jaap insists on using non-hidden files
in the interest of letting the user manipulate them with his file
