Having source below the version is no prob, full version names like neither - not being able to move stuff around *is* a

The reason here is that we don't mirror old versions (that would put
too much burden on our friendly mirror donors), thus they will
require different paths -

what could be possible is to keep a copy/hardlink in the old tree
right away, so packagers would only access the download site via
d.tdf.o/old/... -

I gather you'd not be terribly concerned if the box/.../win subdirs
are initially empty there? I'd like to avoid people downloading
binaries from there en masse.

Sounds ok?
