To do that we'd need someone on the dev team willing and able to build the
windows binaries.  Many of us don't have windows at all.  Of those who do,
it seems none have stepped up to this task.

When you install a binary through apt, pkg, yum, or any of those systems,
what you are installing is a third-party build from some distributor who is
expert in the particular system you're installing on.  Grabbing a windows
binary from ApacheLounge would seem to be much the same thing.
