Thanks for responding to this and fixing what you could. I
understand now that a lot of the things are Window-isms
and thus not fixable.

Not really. Anyone listening that could create a simpler URL? Redirects
are cheap after all...

Heh. No idea. But is there a Windows TODO this could go on?

Sure, but doing an initdb is the default action. Can't we do a simple check
early on just to let the user know that "this directory cannot be
used for the data directory"?

They're up now, and look great!

Can't you just say "wordpad %1" or whatever the Win convention is.

Can't argue with that. But we could test for wordpad first...

Does it depend on the extension? The conf files should be safe if so...

Ouch. Those poor Windows users.

Thanks for all the work you and everyone else has done on making this
