How do other portable apps handle the customary behavior of being able 
to launch an app by double-clicking one of its documents?  Or it is 
considered acceptable to blow that off for portable apps?

And if we do ignore that for portable apps, assuming we'd like to ship a 
single app for both portable and installed use, how can we know we're 
running installed so that we could write the file association entry to 
the registry as customers would expect for a hard-drive-installed app?
