All INI files from the 0.8 Windows binary had absolute path names, which 
obviously tied them to the installation path.  I'd assumed absolute 
paths was a *requirement* (in which case the .ini files would need to be 
generated at install time) but it turns out it is not - I've got couch 
running on Windows using only relative paths in the INI file, meaning it 
can be 'portable' with respect to where it is run from.

Hope this clarifies,
