NPM v1.2.0 :: cache.html & config.html have conflicting statements for the Cache Dir Env Var on Windows ...

Config :: Default: Windows: %APPDATA%\npm-cache, Posix: ~/.npm
Cache :: Default: $HOME/.npm on Posix, or $HOME/npm-cache on Windows.

Personally I don't use %appdata% as I'm running msys and mingw so I have $HOME set to ~


Patch welcome!
