Paths to find dqtq and ibi should be documented somewhere though. So
someone that want  to delete the application can delete the data.
(data shouldn't be in the application resources) .

Since 1st june, OSX qpps qre required to be sandboxed. Which is ino
better for the end user. We should really adapt the current version to
have it.  Tjis isn't a show stopper, but still something usefull qnd
not so hard to implement.

Anyway for the port part I still think it`s important. I think we
could have a default to 5984 and if it`s used,  use another port
automatically and notify it.
