I'm not into creating that much work for someone else, since I'm 
certainly not going to be the one making this change.

Adding static text or a second button (as Paul suggested) is fine by me. 
But I don't want to start receiving bugs (or more likely, I don't want 
webmaster to start receiving emails) saying that the download is broken 
because someone who didn't think got the incompatible version.
