Are you still planning to implement the registry-based approach? I ask because 
you seemed in favor of avoiding modifying PATH, if at all possible (a position 
I agree with), and the registry approach would eliminate that need while still 
making GDAL + bindings “just work”.

Could you improve the Windows GDAL installer, so that it automatically sets
the environment variables (GDAL_DATA and GDAL_DRIVER_PATH), and adds the
GDAL binaries path to the PATH environment variable ?

I will  do some improvements in the installers to make the things easier. 
Modifying the environment should only be happen upon the user's request and 
shouldn't be done automatically in my opinion. I would create a custom dialog 
in the installer where the user can allow this setting to be happen.
