Could Xamarin please add public folders (known,special folders) such as photos, videos in PCLStorage

File System Plugin for Xamarin and Windows 1.0.2.1 (PCLStorage) [ http://components.xamarin.com/view/pclstorage ] currently allows access to two folders for applications: LocalStorage and RoamingStorage across Android, IOS, and WP.

In windows 8.1 access to public folders such as photos, video, etc…were added to the API. Access to these folders are vital for many applications.

It seems in IOS and Android path to these folders is via: Environment.SpecialFolder.
In Windows 8.1 access seem to be via Windows.Storage.KnownFolders.

Could Xamarin please add public folders (known,special folders) such as photos, videos, … into “File System Plugin for Xamarin and Windows 1.0.2.1 (PCLStorage)”?

Thank you
