If you know how autolaunching on Windows works/is meant to work, your
comments on <https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38201> would
be very much appreciated.

I'd particularly like to know what the advantages and disadvantages of
autolaunch:, autolaunch:scope=*user and autolaunch:scope=*install-path
are, and how an application distributor should choose which one to use,
so we can make an informed decision about which one should be the D-Bus

There are also two patches awaiting review on that bug which change the
default address on Windows to "autolaunch:scope=*install-path" (it'd be
easy to switch to plain "autolaunch:" if that's more desirable).
