The installer does indeed just put stuff into a folder. It does add a
shortcut to the start menu IIRC, although you can switch that
off. Different versions will work, although I can't remember how it
would handle multiple copies of the same declared version
(i.e. snapshots).

It just uses better compression, so it's much smaller.
