Yes, there is no usage anymore for the old file name structure that was 
used for Bounce. And because Bounce is no longer used, too, also the DL 
logic for Bouncer links can be deleted.

But here and there it's deeply mixed-up with the "normal" DL logic. So, 
to do it safely will be very tricky. Maybe it's OK to leave it as it is 
for now and delete that stuff step-by-step when the release is done.

I would appreciate it very much when Maho and Petro can contribute the 
builds to the mirror systems. As is no longer existing (at 
least the domain) there needs to be a new download location anyway. Then 
linking will be much easier. Otherwise there needs to be additional logic.

Of course this applies also to the OS/2 builds from Yuri and others.
