and does it help log4net? (feeling kind of strange about juggling hats
right now :-)

IMHO log4net uses Gump as nightly build system and not because of its
"Gumpness".  log4net doesn't have any dependencies apart from the CLR
and we Gump folks have never figured out how to make "replace a
dependency with the one we've just built" properly anyway.

I'm not sure whether there is NAnt installed on any Jenkins slave, but
at least you'd get Windows nodes with "real" .NET platforms.  A start
might by to run MSBuild on one of the solution files.

Philosphically Gump isn't suitable as a nightly build system as you
don't know what you are building against in general - somebody attacking
the VCS of project X could easily undermine nightly builds of all
projects dependending on X.
