No, if something breaks then the user has to fix it.
I don't mind adding a deprecated feature but I think some kind of
optional wrapper script eliminates the need.
And, I really think that we should consider adding some kind of way
to warn people about these issues in setup.exe. I've always thought that
it should be somehow possible for packages to open dialog boxes.
