Setup.exe subdirectories

I just tried downloading the new grep package in one setup.exe run and then
installing it in another.  Until I deleted the old setup.ini in the base
directory, I got message IDS_OLD_SETUPINI when I tried to install from the
local directory.

It looks like the setup.ini routines in and iniparse.y are
overwriting setup_timestamp and setup_version with the last setup.ini file
read.  If that happens to be the newest, everyone is happy.  If it isn't
things could be confused.

Would it be worthwhile for me to try to make sure only the newest setup.ini
gets used?
