Media Manager - root directory

Hi, root directory of Media Manager is now images/stories/ instead of images/.

Is this final solution?

Where should I place images which are using from non basic component. E.g.:

Phoca Gallery component - Images was saved in images/phocagallery folder. User uploaded their images via Media Manager. Now, they have no access to images/phocagallery/, because root directory is images/stories/.

Should I create: images/stories/phocagallery/ folder? Maybe it will be confusing...  ??? Is there other way to solve this problem (maybe changing of root directory in Media Manager)?

Thank you Jan

Some of us have asked access to Images folder directly but no success.
Therefore I guess that using images/stories is the way to go.

It can be a problem in future. Now there are a few amount of components, they are using Media Manager, but in the future: Images, Videos, PDFs, Docs, ... all that files will be placed in images/stories/ ??? Is there a serious reason to do images/stories/ as a root folder?

As far as I remember, there was a good reason for front-end access (something to do with security).
Issue for a few of us is that it acts the same in back-end.
