current design:

two files created in the install directories

core editor binary (release build) denies run if RADIANT_MAJOR or RADIANT_MINOR
don't match it's hardcoded compile time
(if files are not present, deny too)
the error message should be pretty clear, and if needed point to a complete help

update setup refuses to install if it doesn't find a matching RADIANT_MAJOR (in
the core directory, AND in the gamepacks). while running, setup updates those files.

on Linux this doesn't seem so much important, as we don't have the same
situation where menu shortcuts could point to a bad binary?
