I'm not sure about the choice for Windows. Do we want

I honestly don't know. What's the normal thing to do with

The registry, I think.

The registry would be used indeed to get the path or to override
defaults. However, what would be the default value (written in the
registry by the installer, or used by the program if the registry
value is absent)?

ini-style configs are not at all uncommon on Windows. I also don't
think it's that uncommon to store executables and config files
side-by-side in a Program Files directory.

Indeed, that's what I'm saying.  The registry may hold a path to the
ini files, but you would still have to think of a sane default.  You
chose the binaries' directory, fine, that's not a huge deal---someone
who cares about Windows can step up and say what they think.
