RE: Binary Packages Page - New Unified Windows Installer

The main point was that exactly the same installer will be uploaded to two
places. I can certainly do that, I was just wondering whether it was the
most logical thing to do. If there's no more discussion I'll just upload
the same file twice.

Incidentally, the new page looks nice but it took me some time to
re-discover the old win32 binaries locations. That was another factor why I
was thinking that way - most windows users will just be looking for a win32
installer, so if it is the list as "win32 installer" then there'll be less
questions on how to find it.
