That, per se, won't cut it: We expect users to modify those files
(that's why they're not residing in the "Program Files" folder in the
first place), so to prevent one user's modification to affect another
user, each needs their own copy.

What we probably should do, instead, is to put all the stuff in
"C:\Users\Default\Documents", and when a user runs POV-Ray for the first
time, copy it from there to the user's own documents folder.

Start Menu is a different matter.
