[Qgis-developer] QGIS on Windows: order another desktop to accommodate all the icons

Any folder installed to the Windows desktop is extremely irregular. In fact,
I'm not sure I've ever seen another application do it. 

1. Install to C:\Program Files

2. Add all shortcuts to new Start menu folder

3. Ask to add QGIS shortcut to the desktop

4. Some installers also ask if you want quick launch shortcuts

All options can be overridden. But this should be in the standalone, not
just the OSGeo installer. It's what users expect.
