So this is the way I read it:
packages.el uses packages-find-package-hierarchies on the components of
EMACSPACKAGEPATH, which in my case has the value
Unfortunately, what it's doing is looking for 'site-packages' or
'xemacs-packages' as subdirectories of the components of that variable,
which obviously isn't going to work.
I can delete the registry key easily enough, but what about those people who
will be installing 21.5 on windows with an installer? Will we remove the
key for them, or do we need to change the packages.el logic?
