An "official" folder would be ok. But it should be possible to reassign  
this variable if necessary. In my case I have the work folder /jmmmp-ext  
in the extras folder (where is also a jmmmp folder from pd). That allows  
me to get to my work much faster than having something on my system user  
When I update pd, it always overwrites everything but this folder,
