One feature I think would be a great asset for us that are using XBMC in a multi location setup (ie: Rec Room, Family Room, Bedroom, etc.. ) where the need to have a common shared environment for things like Thumbnails, Advance Settings and Sources, is to have the ability to select a NFS/CIFS/SMB location to store these files.
Even cooler would be the option to store it at the profile level as well..
I already use MySQL and using XBMC with Ubuntu and I use symbolic links to create these optional mount points now. But the NFS mount points are not always available when XBMC starts. Usually after a minute or so, the mount points are active and everything works, but it would be better if I could have XBMC create the mount points itself and wait till they are available.
I think it would also be handy for those who might have limited disk space, and storing a load of thumbnails on another drive would be an asset as well..
