I think to get everything working in a sustainable fashion, we would need buildbots for all platform combinations that we want to support, so all permutations of the (32/64 bit, linux / OS X / windows, py27/py3.3) tuple. At the moment anaconda seems to support 32 and 64 bit linux, 64 bit OS X (not totally clear if OS X version matters), and 32 and 64 bit windows.
Another option is to rely on conda build, which compiles everything from source.

I have less of a skin in this than I used to, but I'd like to raise the issue of Windows & package managers. For example, Anaconda is available for Windows - would that mean that yt might "just work" on Windows? Or the opposite, and it would require a great deal of effort to get all the various things we expect to be .so's to work as .dll's (such as the Cython helpers or halo-finding stuff)?
I don't know the answers to these questions, but I think it's worth thinking about.
