In my opinion "wiki" is just as vague as "notes". If you want to be
technical, probably something like "hypertext notes" would be most
descriptive, but I'm afraid this will scare away non-technical users.

Anyway, this is not the point of discussion now. Since the whole interface
is using the concept of a "notebook" to refer to a set of pages I'm not
going to deviate from that for choosing a default directory name.
