I think the cleanest way to accomplish this is to just back up the 3.7.0
binaries, install 3.7.1, and copy the 3.7.0 binaries back in under a
You may also need to apply your 3.7.0 `ior.inc` workaround.

To the best of my knowledge, the Unix beta did not install in a separate
directory (as opposed to the Windows beta), so whatever you did on Unix
to keep 3.7.0 and 3.7.1-beta separate should also work for the 3.7.1-rc
and later the 3.7.1 final.
