Note that --local-package-dir is a little broken; specifically, it gets
overridden by whatever the user selected last time they ran setup.exe
(at least, this was the case as of setup.exe version 2.510.2.2). The
problem has been fixed in CVS, but there doesn't seem to have been a
setup.exe release since then...
There might also have been another buggy command-line switch, but I
can't recall what it was at the moment.
