_I_ think people _should_ do that, for there to be no chance of files
from a previous nightly to remain on the tester's computer. As Stefan
said, though, all of the binaries are marked with a version number and
it should be fine.

Alternatively, we could figure out how to release the nightlies as
patches. But that's almost certainly more trouble than it's worth what
with recording Product/Package GUIDs that would become necessary...
