        Also allow users to do so through the GUI. Similar to the Choose Folders UI in the Accounts tab.

          No, no, no, no, no. DON"T do symbolic links. Just give it the capability of targeting native, default folders. Syncplicity, for example, can do this. Symbolic links can be a problem. If they become invalid, the OS gets into a panic and you end up jamming up login and other processes, applications generate errors and so on. Users shouldn't have to know how to create a symbolic link to use capability like this.

            What they're actually asking for is better handling of low disk space scenarios.
            Better to fix that - the actual underlying problem - rather than put in a workaround ("solution") that randos on the internet came up with.

            If you do this, you need to allow system administrators to override and block it. I can't have corporate data being synced to unmanaged storage (i.e. not protected by FileVault).
            This is really a dumb request, because at it's core, it's asking to make cloud data portable on an external drive.
            Why not just sync specific folders, if you're worried about filling up the drive?
