I don't know if this is a good idea. Average users will expect a localized
'Documents and Settings' directory. Renaming it will confuse them. ReactOS
already solves naming conflicts with existing Windows installations.

I already have a patch for the common shell folders in the HKLM branch and
I'll fix the HKCU branch tomorrow. I already wanted to fix this some time
ago but the registry was playing some dirty tricks on me. This was caused by
the bitmap routine bug that was fixed a few days ago.
