The user documents folder was just an arbitrary choice used by my  
iterate folders demo. There are MANY folder constants to choose from  
and they may be found in the Xcode docs. Just look up FSFindFolder  
and click on the Folder Type Constants link in the description of the  
foldertype parm to FSFindFolder. You will want to read about how  
certain system folders should be used. For example,  
kApplicationSupportFolderType is suggested for use by application- 
specific data files that are not preferences.
