MythGame 0.22 - need separate screenshot dirs per system

Prior to 0.22, there was an option for a screenshot directory per system type. As of 0.22, there is a single setting for ALL games for the dir where screenshots, fanart, and boxart are stored.

IMHO, dumping all the screenshots for all systems in the same directory is BAD!

Suppose you have game "foo" for 8-bit SystemX, 16-bit SystemY, and 64-bit SystemZ... foo.png for each system should be different.

At least for screenshots, I would like a unique dir setting per emulator back.

If we want to stick with keeping the per emulator system config screens simple, my proposed solution is to have a single directory setting for mythgame metadata, and then to have each system look under $PATH/TO/MYTHGAME_METADATA/$SYSTEMNAME/$DIR where $SYSTEMNAME is the name of the game player as entered by user, and $DIR is screenshots, fanart, and boxart
