$wp_dirs = wp_upload_dir();

It handles knowing exactly where the uploads directories are used for all 
wordpress installs, it's an array, also returns error message if there are 
any errors.  It's handled for you.

Separating directories to a plugin-data directory is just not a good idea, 
you want to limit the amount of open permission directories, so stick with a 
single one (or blogs.dir for ms)
