Is there a compelling reason why the settings, cache, pvr file etc. 
can't be stored in the get_iplayer folder itself?

In other words, is it possible for the installer to install GiP as a 
truely *portable* application? AFAIK, everything in the get_iplayer 
folder can be run from a memory stick without problems - provided the 
two folders are present in Documents and Settings.

If it is possible, then it would be possible to install offline and move 
it between computers, with obvious benefits given the recent problems 
with outages. Updates would still be online, of course.
