In future releases, we won't be advertising the web-based installers anymore. They never got much use, and the shorter list of downloads will be more beneficial to users than saving 10-20MB worth of bandwidth. The web site change has already been made, and depending on when RMs pick up the newer script might impact any future release.

For 3.10, at least, we can stop producing and uploading the web-based installer. It won't hurt to keep doing it, and the *_pdb.msi and *_d.msi files will remain (as those are always download on demand), but it can eventually stop being produced (should just be in Tools/msi/buildrelease.bat, IIRC).
