Maybe to address floris v's initial concerns -- and in truth this is how we
have been operating for a while, with replacement -- we should just edit
the Development Snapshot page to caution folks to always do a "custom"
install so they can install a different location than the normal default
for their systems, which will always do an overwrite.

Would this work? Even for Windows?
