This is good approach but this isn't pcmanfm level but rather package
management one so it's better to leave package-independent default config
that is shipped with pcmanfm without such default, as Sergio proposed. So
packages can insert their defaults in post-install scripts or in package
specific patch (you know about alternatives system in Debian perhaps). If
there will be no objections then I'll remove that default.
