I think the better solution to this is to not store the
files/whatever/file in the DB row and store only file. The variables
tell where the files are located so storing the path to the file in the
row is a normalization issue. I just moved a site from one host
service to another and the location for the files changed. Needless to
say I had to update the user rows for the avatar's no less. If the
variables were used always to create the path and only the file name
stored in the DB then moving the files directory should have been a
simple change to the configuration. I don't have time to work on a
patch for this idea at the moment but I do have it on my round tuit
Make a Drupal difference and review core patches.
