Comment (by arma):

 Well, geoip files are used by clients for e.g. the country codes in
 ExitNodes lines (as Runa points out from way long ago). So it isn't just
 about being a relay or a bridge.

 That said, I think we have only one Windows thing, and that's Tor Browser,
 and that sets geoipfile itself.

 So I am totally fine with having the Windows behavior for geoipfile be
 undefined if you don't set it.

 That said, I am also totally fine by having it default to a smarter place
 than it does currently, if that might help some people. Heck, maybe that
 place is something really simple, like "the current working directory" or
 "the same directory as the tor binary"?
