This I do in the filechooser too. As I said in one of my first mails,
it is because I considered an inconsistency the fact that we use
"Home" in the gnome-panel and not in the filechooser and Nautilus. I
really think this makes it easier to understand for the user, but I
don't really care if we keep it or not. If you want me to, I'll revert
this without complaining.

Woops sorry, thought I had got rid of this one. I'll send a new patch
when I get your thoughts on the matter above.

The problem here is that I don't know much about upstream, but I think
all the ~/Documents handling stuff we do is done with Ubuntu specific
patches. So I don't know if upstream will want to add an icon that
they don't use anywhere to their code. Maybe it would be better to add
it to the ubuntu package of gnome-icon-theme ? Anyway, I thought the
specific icon would allow users to identify more easily the Documents
folder anywhere they would see it, but if it is not wanted, I really
won't complain and remove all this from the patches.

So, give me your thoughts, I'll act accordingly :-)
