utl::Bootstrap::locateUserInstallation from unotools/bootstrap.hxx 
effectively returns the value for the "UserInstallation" key stored in 
the bootstrap ini file (program/bootstraprc on Unix, 
program/bootstrap.ini on Windows).

The rtl::Bootstrap class is lower-level, it manages the set of so-called 
"bootstrap variables" that can be set via ini files, environment 
variables, and command line arguments.
