Where StrED_cfg is placed is up to the user. Whether it's in Choices or
next to StrongED it will be found and used.

If someone wants to run different versions of StrongED then it's easier
to have each StrED_cfg next to the version it belongs to.

The Obey file that sets up StrongED's read and write paths will check
the version of StrED_cfg and will alert the user if it's too old. If no
warning appears then you can safely carry on using the 'old' StrED_cfg.

StrongED 4.70a12 shipped with StrED_cfg 1.03, 4.70a13 comes with 1.04
which has minor changes. By accident 4.70a12 included an older version.

When StrED_cfg needs to be updated then there will instructions in the
download on how to do this. If there's a new version and you'd like to
update even if it's not required, use the following:

 - Rename/move old StrED_cfg
 - Copy new StrED_cfg in its place
 - Open old StrED_cfg application directory
 - Open new StrED_cfg application directory
 - Copy UserPrefs directory from old to new
