It struck me that another option would be an installer that downloads the
latest available version for you, as then we wouldn't have to rebuild the
installer for every new version.

'make zip' does that. It basically runs the tools/ script that
creates a full install dir hierarchy.

When building zip files, we only have files around for that particular build.
We don't have files from other builds easily accessible within the sandbox of
the current build.

If your install needs files from multiple builds, then I propose it is made
into a script that gets the full paths to multiple zip files as arguments and
then the script extracts and uses whatever files it deems necessary to use
from those zip packages.

I prefer a fully working script! ;-) We don't even have wine installed here
