Bug Description

At present, against plone.recipe.zope2instance 4.1.4, the file-storage option is described thus:

> file-storage
> The filename where the ZODB data file will be stored. Defaults to var/filestorage/Data.fs.

The default value is correct, but this option doesn't clearly set out that the 'var' location gets appended automatically (plone.repicpe.zope2instance, line 329).

This stands in contrast to other options like 'blob-storage', where if one is setting the option manually, then the option is taken verbatim.

It seems like it would be useful to let users specify arbitrary locations for their Data.fs files without having to change the entire 'var' directory variable. You can already do so with blob storage, so making these options consistent makes sense.

In any case, more clarification in the readme would be useful. Thanks.
