This is more for when you want to install a data file and don't care
where, but you need to be able to find it later. My configuration file
should wind up in a fixed location (e.g. /etc on Linux); I'm just not
sure where that is on Windows, and I don't want to have to hard-code it
in case it changes in Windows 3000.

Thanks for the suggestion though.
