Could you suggest something that would be clear?  I'm not really sure
what to change it to, although I can see that it could be confusing.
"For the really impatient" and "Installation for the patient"?  An extra
paragraph at the top of the "Installation" section stating this?

It only needs to be used once, to install it.  OTOH, if you ever want to
remove it, it's much easier to run "pop3proxy_service.py remove" than it
is to manually remove the service from the registry.  So it's a two-time
only use, I guess.  Maybe we should just install the windows directory,
too :)
