Well, most people will be using the binary version soon, hopefully,
which defaults to the non-service version unless the service is
installed (note that pop3proxy_tray works with the service if it is
installed, and only if not, starts up a sb_server thread).

So ease of installation isn't really an issue - if people want to be
using the source, then they should be capable of running
"pop3proxy_service.py install", which is all that is necessary.  For
some, the service is a better option.
