We need to provide an "upgrading guide", of sorts. This can just
be a release note.

We need to find a way to make the install script remove the older
'scripts' that have already been installed (and which may be busted!)
but which are no longer in the distro.

I tend to do the following:

make a tarball and a zipfile

unpack them on a totally different machine, install it, diff against 
what was already there beforehand, a bunch of other, similar, sanity

then it's SF release dance time...
