As a followup on this as well - why couldn't we simply use a check based on if
the root_dir existed at the beginning of the installation - if there was a
root_dir then the default for setting the icons is No (unchecked) since the
user would have been previously asked. If there is no root_dir at the
beginning and we are doing an install then the defualt for the icons will be
Yes (checked). Basing it on the root_dir for the default setting is probably
the better way since they may have moved the links - as I do or simply not want
to use them.
