No; because MSI only considers the first three parts of our version
number, nightlies get installed side-by-side with each other; as far as
MSI is concerned, the nightly installer is not being required to upgrade
a previous package, so it installs its payload next to it. I don't
really understand how files with the same name can coexist in the same
directory, though, and be different versions...
