Re: config files on Windows

Hontvari:

OK, I was going on the design assumption that people were against that API
for various reasons (including when it isn't there and people don't want to
add the neccessary DLL to the download package). I did pull that registry
key from MSDN, but agree that I would prefer to see the SHGetFolderPath API
to be used. There was a little confusion on my part, however. Seeing the
SH*() API I assumed it was part of the "Shell Lightweight API" (shlwapi),
which is usually not the most recommended way of accomplishing goals.

Sincerely,
Jay Freeman (saurik)
