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outdated quite quickly unless you're willing to continue to make the 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?

Cheers, Chris.
