I think this is the best option. It is used in several FLOSS projects.

The nightlies are for advanced users. They don't have to be user
friendly so decoupling it from the installer is not a problem.

Unless there is a specific problem or change that needs to be tested
in the installer itself, there is no need to waste time on

This would allow to have as many versions in parallel as wished.

Actually this is what I currently do with the MinGW compiled binaries ;)

Why reinvent the wheel?
