The contents of the manifest and scribble files are very simple and can easily be created if you simply look at a sample one. How is this difficult?

Then even after the user views gold.pdf for the first time, the location of gold.pdf doesn't change, because it looks to the iLiad just like it has already been viewed (i.e. has the correct folder structure.)

Thats obviously not desired...

It also doesn't matter what the directory name is (Though I usually name it the title of the book in a way that I can easily sort).
We all agree on that. I answered to "why not let iLiad do it for you?"

And jimbocho already mentioned "pregenerated manifest" files.
