If we want to "play nice" in the windows world, we should definitly
*not* put things directly in %USERPROFILE%. And if we're ever going to
change it, now is the time.
I would like to see all these files moved into <appdatadir>\PostgreSQL\
or %USERPROFILE%\PostgreSQL\ (Appdata is obviously the nicest).
We might want to consider removing the leading-dot on those files too -
some Widnows tools go nuts on that. (most don't, but some do). And it
doesn't accomplish anything (like it does on Unix) other than confusing
the user. If it's not too much work.
