It certainly isn't a totally secure solution, I was just doing that in
reference to J. Random User's ability to get the keys (either remotely or
locally).  Of course locks on doors are only to keep the honest people out.

OK, just did that, and it still runs, thanks!

I think merging Matt's patch is definitely a good idea for the next release,
letting it run as LocalService by default, and the error message thing is an
improvement over having to run "sc query" every time...
