As I do not want to keep delaying the release of 3.6, I am going to delay any further mods to tc-install until 3.7.

You may even allow for chainloading into other linux distros.

Just noting that often there's nothing to chainload for distros, since the usual case is grub/lilo in the mbr.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Good idea, as you can set it up to chainload to Windows in 3.7rc1, and ask people to test it with different versions of Windows.

If it is discovered that something needs to be done differently for certain versions of Windows, that can be modified in later rcs.

I have a simple basic Windows and Tiny Core auto detected menu setup when mark active partition is selected from the GUI. Look for it when 3.7rc1 is posted.

Perhaps a major change in plans for the installer. Developing...
