I agree; and there's another reason: the patch says:

| "Download to path".
| 3) I think the prompt "Installation root?" makes more sense than
| "Installation directory?".
"Download directory?" [(1) patch's recommendation]
"Installation directory?" [(3) Earnie's recommendation]
makes for less confusion. If it is desired to distinguish (3), then
something like "Installation base directory" could be considered.
