It will be a fun to implement a translator for this. 


We can also have an option to create on first time access, it if such
a directory is missing.

It makes sense to call it CONTEXT-SENSITIVE-PATH (translator name as
context-path). I have added it to 1.5 release. But you will be
surprised to see it sooner.

Please propose a list of useful variables like the one I listed

Thanks for suggestions.
