Ok, I believe we think the same way. What I want to do is just add some
things to make it more easy to get started using Emacs for an ms windows

1) Gnuserv is loaded

2) Some windows specific printing entries to the menus since printing
otherwise tends to be a problem when you start with Emacs on ms windows. I
also remove the unix-related printing entries from the menus because they do
not work or do not work as you expect them to. Of course I make this as
customization options.

3) I also offer some keyboard tweaks (CUA-mode, swbuff.el tighed to C-tab)
that can be good for an ms windows user. It is of course also in this case
very important that they are customization options.

4) recentf.el are also added, most ms windows programs has something like

If no one has a good objection I will load things from default.el then. I
will do this by loading one file only from default.el to not clutter
