Would rather not do this, since it gives the idea that this is a place
where users can store their own files mixed with blenders files.
even at the moment this isnt quite the case since any change they make
to a script will get overwritten on next build.
better to make it clear this dir will always contain a working, up to
date blender build which wont be mixed with old files.
