You mean this should be automated. Sure, that seems possible. From the
code in desktop.cc it seems that the placement of shortcut and program group
is dependent on whether "All users" or "Just me" option was selected so at
least that part of it is in agreement with your suggestion, unless I'm
missing something. Someone would need to provide a patch that removed the
current options though and add the test you mention to automate the rest.
You've spent more time in the setup code than I have though Gary so you
probably know better than I how easy or not this would be to implement.
