What do I do to change the default upload location for the files uploaded through Userforms? Isn't there a config setting or a a file to modify?

The general "Uploads" directory can easily become a mess...

Not yet. But this is on the roadmap

If you want to change the directory that the file is uploaded to, in UserDefinedForms.php just add a third variable to the line
$upload->loadIntoFile($_FILES[$field->Name], $file);
with the directory that you want the files to go to. The directory is relative to the assets folder so
$upload->loadIntoFile($_FILES[$field->Name], $file, 'Uploads/folder');
will upload to 'assets/Uploads/folder'
