I quite agree with the OP.
Being able to tell where to put the files seams like a basic feature...

I made my own software, for now it's still epub only, but it does what I want it to do, it don't try to decide in my stead how to organize my files. As I developer, i'm used to software that jump when I say jump.

I mean to make it open source, someday, sometimes. Need a few bug fix, and some user-friendly install.

If you don't like how Calibre works, feel free to use your own directory structure and use Calibre only to convert formats. You'll need a few extra steps, but then you can manage your books your own way.

Also rememember that Calibre is free and no one is forcing you to use it :-)
Trouble is, there is not much alternative.
As to making development, it was made clear by quite a few people here that they don't want calibre to be improved...
