I think that should be possible by setting the 'cluster.name' property
on the link picker plugin.  It is 'cms-pickers/documents' by default.

There are a number of other settings available in the
NodePickerControllerSettings such as
- the list of valid nodetypes ('nodetypes')
- the key to store the last visited folder ('last.visited.key'), to
have the dialog use the same folder it was in last time it was used.

cheers, Frank
