are you a volunteer whou would develop a multiplatform code which will
delete KOMA script if installed without docs and a second user is
added to the computer? And how would you cope with Home editions of
Windows having just one pseudouser meaning "everybody"?

And after thinking several times, I still reached the conclusion that Max Chernoff cannot and should not be required to conform with the requirements of a multi-user licence if he is installing on a single-user machine. The fact that the TeX Live infrastructure does not make it possible for KOMA-script to identify unambiguously whether or not it is being installed on a multi-user system is clearly a defect in the TeX Live infrastructure which should be addressed.
