  FWIW, I do this with just about every release I make (and I'm a bit
surprised to hear that this isn't a common thing).  While I do have a
Windows machine I *could* build releases on (with cygwin though, not MSVC),
my release process is mostly automated, and runs on a Linux box.  I don't
think the thread is headed in this direction, but just in case, *please*
don't break this feature :)
