Works for me.

One question: the old plan was, as outlined by Brian, that we would
eventually have:

release_legacy   <<-- renamed from existing 'release' directory
release          <<-- new 1.7 stuff, once it is "gold".
(and somewhere we would have a temp release-1.7/-2008/whatever thing,
which would get renamed to 'release')

Is the new plan:

release   <<-- stays exactly as is, forever and ever. (OK, maybe some
pkg updates...)
release-2 <<-- "temp" with custom setup.exe during development, but
eventually becomes "actual" when
  (a) we decide that 1.7 and associated pkgs are ready to go
  (b) and we release a "new" setup.exe with the special "are you
  Win9x"-->release (NOT release_legacy), else -->release-2

That is, no directory renaming at all (which would make the mirrors
happy) -- we "activate" by releasing a new setup?
