Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

Currently there is an option to copy documents, music, etc. from another installation to the current one.
It should be really useful to offer to link those directories insted of copying the content, so that more operating systems will share the same documents without needing to synchronize folders.

This is what I do every time I install ubuntu. I have my documents, pictures, videos, etc dirs shared by fedora, ubuntu and windows.
