This is not a good situation. IMHO the installer on the branch should be
kept up-to-date -- remember, Win32 build on the trunk is already
significantly different than the one on the branch (trunk uses APR DLLs)

I really don't know why this is necessary. All necessary changes to
installers should be made on the release branch before the release is
tagged, otherwise people can't make their own packages from the tarball.
That's weird.

We can do this at least for Windows, where the package maintainer and
release manager are the same person. :-)
