Here is my take.  Installer doesn't really get as much of a benefit of
pre-releases as other software does.  For that reason, installer should
be pretty solid for Alpha, even more solid for Beta.  If things aren't
found at Alpha and fixed for Beta we don't really get a significant
testing of the fix before final and that's a bit hard to consume.  So I
would concentrate pretty hard on the installer cases for alpha and less
about the content being installed.

Also, testing the new installer features would be good, like resizing,
encryption, url method, etc...
