I've committed a modified version of this patch, which uses C:\.j if
that directory already exists, but otherwise creates and uses a .j
subdirectory under %APPDATA%. With this change, existing j users won't
unexpectedly lose their saved state, and moving the .j directory by
hand from C:\ to %APPDATA% just works.
