We've been through that one and although I think that a hidden
directory would be best (Because Zim is used to manipulate the data,
not a file manager. Do you want your Firefox profile in a non-hidden
directory? Your Gnome settings?) I accept your decision as the project
developer. How about checking if a ~/Notes directory exists, if yes
checking if it is or Zim origin, and if yes using it. If not, then
either trying another sensible name (ZimNotes, maybe) or asking the
user to select a name.

This would be good, but after Zim checks like I describe above.
