Please, be my guest. Produce a package from 1692, I'll upload it and
we'll see what people think.
My worry is that I can't prodce such packages, so it will probably become
outdated quite quickly unless you're willing to continue to make the
effort to provide new ones over time.

Do we actually have to use the registry for that? Can't we continue to
pass the config filename on the command line as we do now?
What are the actual restrictions? That users can't write to C:\Program
Files? Ah, it's a miracle, good lord! What stops users from installing Box
Backup executables in their own home directories too?
With Box Backup running as a system account (Backup Operator), where is
its home directory?
