Local Setup Cache

I'll see if I can come up with a patch for that FIXME today.  If the version
number isn't greater than one of the known versions it will be silently

That still leaves all those old versions laying around on the disk.  Is
setup.exe the right place to do the cleanup or should we try to get users to
run something else periodically to remove them?
