Of course, this way you could also create a directory 
X:\T\e\X\L\i\v\e\2\0\1\8 ..., but it is quite nasty. With the current 
system you can just choose the home directory and let the installer 
choose a proper substructure, which you also can overwrite, without 
changing too much between keyboard and mouse.


Thanks to the TeXLive team for setting up such a valuable and 
comfortable system!
