It is a mess. For now I would say go ahead and when you add any new 
PBI's from the build-server, remove any old versions of that program 
from PBIDir and the mirrors. If you run across any "broken" PBI's, 
please remove those as well.

Also, what do you guys think about restructuring the mirrors a bit? 
Maybe instead of placing "Firefox" in PBI/Web/ we make sub-folders for 
each app, like PBI/Web/Firefox/Firefox2.0.0.8.pbi, then list all 
versions of FF in the "Firefox" subfolder, which makes it easier to 
cleanup old versions.

Also, I hope everybody had a great Christmas! We did here, and are 
looking forward to the new year as well.

We are working hard on the PBI stuff still. I plan on writing an update 
to the PBI installer in the next week or so. I want to add a few new 

  * Allow user to select install location
  * Display required disk space for PBI
  * Internal MD5 check for PBI program data
