The idea is that the Processing preferences does two things regarding it’s sketchbook & library path:

* shows you where it currently is (after having created the default ~/Documents/Processing folder on first run if it doesn’t exist) 
* allows you to change the path

My point was it would be a good idea if Pd also let’s you do the same regarding deken’s install path.
