The .rockbox root folder on my sansa was untidy with the database files being store there. I organized it a little by putting all the database files in a folder called database.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Rejected
Additional comments about closing:  the .rockbox folder is explicitly for rockbox files, there is no need to try to clean it up, users should never actualy go into it.

I have been using more or less exactly the same patch in my local build for a long time, but I am hesitant to commit it as people will lose their old database information unless they move/rename the files.

You shouldn't be browsing into the .rockbox folder ever, so why is this even remotely necessary?

Sheesh!! As the title states i just wanted to put some order into the .rockbox folder. If its that much of a problem for you and a such critical waste of resources i guess you can close it.

Well, I was simply wondering if there was a justification for this patch to make it worth causing mass confusion for all current users of the database. It's not like other runtime generated files (glyphcache, nvram.bin) aren't put in /.rockbox/, so I felt perhaps there was some other reasoning than "I like it better this way" which seems like a poor excuse to break things, even briefly.
