#363: osgeo4w-setup.exe should remove old releases

Priority:  major        |   Component:  Installer

 osgeo4w-setup.exe should offer to or automatically remove old releases.
 Right now, for example, I have 492 MB worth of old QGIS release .tar.bz2
 files saved on my hard drive. If I had to reinstall, I only need the
 latest one.

 I realize there are developers who might prefer multiple releases, but I
 imagine that many (most?) osgeo4w-setup.exe users are "just users" and
 don't need all all these archival copies.

 I don't see where to find the version of the copy of osgeo4w-setup.exe
 that I have--it was downloaded a few days ago--so no version selected in
 this ticket.
