Is there any reason we want to keep them around for people to be able
to get the older version? IIRC we usually drop the beta versions when
we release, but we do keep old actual releases around for a while. By
that metric we should just delete the alpha folders completely - but
is there a risk we're deleting something useful if we do it this
