Maybe I didn't pay enough attention to this thread, but I didn't know
you wanted to delete the old isos.

Interim solution: just put the new isos out there.  If people have
problems with removing the ISOs, then we can worry about that later -
the important thing, at this moment in time, is putting the new isos
out there.

So here's the definite: don't delete things just yet, push the new
ISOs out so we can get this release moving, and we can worry about
deletion / moving dirs after the release.
