It is fairly straightforward to make the Windows and Linux installers pre-register the default mod metadata during install (so that they are available for fast-switching without having to be manually launched the first time), and my utility-registration branch adds this.

This branch isn't mergable in its current state, because writing user-specific files for only the current user from an installer is very bad practice.

Once #10374 has been solved we can switch the metadata files over to the shared data dir and this proof of concept should be mergable as-is.
