Well...I can't imagine any interest in a hacky patch for something that may not be as helpful as it once was ;)

My vote is for the two installers route.  If someone really wants full local docs they download the "rubyinstaller-1.9.1p129-fulldocs.exe" and they get a fast, searchable CHM.

They know about the two options up front, they're not surpised, and they don't feel the need to file a bug against the installer.
