OK, Issue 4485 created. My first one, so let me know if I goofed. I
elaborated a bit from the original email, upon reflection. Seemed
useful, but also seemed complex by the time I got done.
I don't really have a clue what the uninstaller should do with these;
nor have I fiddled to know if it presently removes Python.File. I
suppose it should delete them, if and only if the ftype and assoc have
the same content as was created by the corresponding version installation.
