Maybe we can set this up as a service? I have the compiler and could do something like doing a checkout, build, and upload new binary for a number of projects.
I don't think this needs to be too automated. Offering this service is a good thing, and if somebody volunteers, I will applaud. However, I believe that it will be used less often than this thread might suggest: Many developers do have VS.NET available, or know somebody in their user community who does (or would know if they asked), so a "global" compilation service would likely be an infrequently-used fallback.
Nevertheless: if somebody wants to offer this for, say, 6 months, I'd be really curious what the feedback will be. We could announce this on pydotorg and elsewhere if that volunteers desires.
