  No we both made mistakes.

  This is the problem.  "" is *only* used when
 a release tarball is made.  End users should ignore it completely.

  The configuration file for Windows is "", the other
 file with the ".in" suffix is an input file used to generate that!

  I thought the docs were clear on the file being significant
 but obviously not.  (I guess I assumed that people would see the
 code in 'run.bat' which explicitly sets up the input file).

  Right.  The process of generating this file left some settings
 commented out.  I've updated the code used here "bin/generate-win-conf"
 to avoid this in the futuere.

  I'll also delete etc/ in future releases to
 avoid confusion.

  I guess I should revisit some of the comments.  There are two
 definitions of "untouched" used in there:
        1.  This'll be fine on Unix - but not windows.
        2.  This'll be fine generally.

  Nope.  See above.
