Comment (by pnoeric):

 FWIW obviously @engelen's suggestion would have prevented the issue that
 caused me to file this bug in the first place, so I'm in favor. :-) But
 really, I think his point about most people having a single "Downloads"
 folder, which gets filled with cruft quickly, is the heart of the matter.
 I also always download a fresh WP installer when I need one because who
 knows what I've been doing with the other stuff in my downloads folder.

 Changing the download folder name to include the version number does
 nothing but ''improve'' clarity. If it isn't onerous to implement on the
 admin side of things (i.e. preparing the download), I can't imagine why it
 would be a bad idea.
