Correct, the idea is that a new StrongED can be installed without the
user's changes/getting lost.

Take your pick; oversight, haste, developer stupidity, ...

Good point. Based on this I added an obey file to 4.69f10 archive that
copies StrED_cfg to Choices$Write (which should point to the correct
directory on all systems with a modern boot sequence).

The instructions were updated accordingly so users no longer have to
delve into !Boot to install StrED_cfg.
