Add option to make games 12.5 and up more portable

Issue #9 new

created an issue

Starting with DS, configuration settings, progress and replays are not stored in the game's directory any more, but in "Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\ShanghaiAlice" (for Vista and 7) and "Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\ShanghaiAlice" (for XP). For people who may want to transfer the games between multiple devices or wine users who have multiple prefixes, there are scripts to make the games more portable, for example:

@echo off
md "%CD%\user"
set "APPDATA=%CD%\user"
start th125

Can something like this be easily implemented in thcrap as a configuration parameter, perhaps with added enhancements, like using the actual user name and copying pre-existing data?
