Well it hasn't have to be done by default. At initial startup the user
could be queried.
Maybe it should be like this. If you run the installer the appropriate
setup is performed at install-time for that user. For a new user on
the machine the same setup is performed but at initial activation.
I think of what you get when XEmacs sees your old .emacs-file and
suggests migrating it to the .xemacs-structure. You could in a similar
fashion ask the user if he wants a windows setup.
