Is it possible to make the client use the wallet in a different place than user/name/appdata/roaming?

I think for security reasons obviously. I'm talking about truecrypt.

Or am I better off just pasting the wallet to the encrypted container after every use and delete it from appdata/roaming each time? It seems a bit primitive that way but still.

Yep, start bitcoin.exe with -datadir <folder>

Should the path end with the exact bitcoin folder or the root?
for example should I write
O:\
or
O:\Bitcoin

No Idea, just do O:\ and see if it creates another dir in it etc. then tweak it to your needs.

You can also try using symlinks if that suits for purposes better, i.e. ln -s <alt path> <link> on linux/osx. Also, I applaud your holistic detective agency. Also, I found the hairs you placed in your house to detect my intrusions.
