[Ardour-Dev] Open session startup directory

I can't seem to find any way to get Ardour to start in a specific
directory for "Open Session".  After looking at the code it appears that
it is hard-wired to $HOME.  I wouldn't think that most people would put
all of their work in their home directory especially since that's
usually on the root drive and we've been recommending using a separate
drive for audio for quite a while.  So, unless I'm mistaken, this would
be a feature request - it would be nice if Ardour could save the
location of the last used directory in the Open Session menu and return
there instead of $HOME the next time it's used.
