Not many users will be able to figure this out, but it seems like
something that many will want. I propose adding it to /etc/skel so that
it gets created by default for new users. Thoughts?
One of the first things I do is delete the Templates directory. I don't
ever use it, and would never create a new file by using a context menu
entry in Nautilus.
I don't see much value in an empty document template (or an empty
~/Templates), but could be swayed by a good selection of real document
templates, e.g. a variety of useful LibreOffice templates, or a good
selection of templates for Perl/Ruby/Python/PHP scripts...
The Templates dir magic is hard to discover, so we should probably do
something about that: either drop it or populate it.
