The suggestion is that Installer v.2 would support Flex 4.8.1 and 4.9

Flex 4.8.1 would just be Flex 4.8 + TLF

Flex 4.9 would not change.

This way, anyone who wants to download Flex 4.8 would need installer v.1
Anyone who uses installer v.2 can chose between Flex 4.8.1 and Flex 4.9

This way, we remove the code to download TLF from Adobe.  This makes life
easier for us because we dont have to maintain two different flows in the
installer.
