IMO this would make it be more general, i.e not as prone to hit this
particular problem nor some other.

 I find it irritating that installers do things that I have NOT asked for
(in this case associate an application with a certain extension). Hunting
down these little pesky things takes more time than it is worth. I still DO
it at times, when I feel like 'killing' something. (Just another form of
'bugswatting' I believe `:-} )

 Many times removing the application doesn't clean up the mess. At times I
do use backups the means to keep a 'irritation clean' system. Not this time
though (huge backup size expected, only CDR's to backup to).
