I'm confused - remove the current Info for installed and add a new bucket for 
installed in the Info structure that keeps track of Prev, Curr and Test.  You 
still are only updating one installed bucket.

That works for me - I guess I just don't see why the installed Info Structure 
is separate from the info Info Structure as we discussed above.  But I think in 
some earlier versions before the heavy rewrites we did use Unknown for an 
installed version not in setup.ini - at least that was the trust we used 
although we may not have used that part of the structure.
