Ok.  The problem is just this.  If setup.exe still works for 9x users
and just access setup-legacy.ini, they will never see that they are
accessing an unsupported repository.  That's why I now think that
setup.exe should give them a warning instead.  They should explicitely
be forced to use setup-legacy.exe if they updated at all.
