Moving /data is already possible by changing the "datadirectory" entry in to 
config file, if you set the value in a default config file it should remember it 
during the installation wizzard.

Moving the config folder is a bit difucult since you would need to store the 
location of the config in the config. The only way I can see having an easy to 
change option in the code.

oc4 uses mdb2, mdb2_schema from git, however upstream mdb2_schema has a severe 
bug in extracting the current schema from the database, I'll look into getting 
my fix upstream for that. The version of mdb2 shipped with oc4 has some minor 
modifications from upstream to solve the strict standards warnings.
