The whole idea of the RFE, is to build an expected behavior through all
the Maemo apps, so the mystery is likely to be replaced with expectation. 

Alternatively if this RFE is still any good, to store data on storage can
be an option then to enable it by default, but such option should be
integrated for an enhance and seamless usage. 

Think of your podcasts, voice memos etc., or if you roll out the camera
and start making a long video how soon you will fill your built in disk ? 

Possibiliy most apps will let you browse and select location of storage
into a folder, that is fair but buys me a job rather. Could we do it to
some default (location) having this RFE in mind, by just selecting to opt
for use "storage card when available" ?
