It's not always obvious on Windows where this directory is because apps
generally write their files there themselves, thus the user doesn't
necessarily even know it exists. Pgpass.conf (which we store there) is a
bit of odd case because it may be used by various front-end applications
or drivers and may need manual editting.

That's not to say I necessarily think it should be added to pg_config -
I could be persuaded either way.
