For release25-maint, probably PCBuild should be used since that is used to create the installer.
For trunk/Python 2.6 I don't know what you will use for the release version.

Where do you think is the challange to get it working?  For the buildbot client itself
I would use the same stuff as in the WinXP buildbot (32-bit python2.4, twisted, buildbot,

For the build scripts in Tools\buildbot I made some small changes to the batch files (appended).
They look for a PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE env var, and if this is equal to AMD64 the build target
and one or two small other things are changed from the default.  So these scripts currently build
the PCBuild process.

I can run Tools\buildbot\build.bat, then Tools\buildbot\test.bat, and Tools\buildbot\clean.bat
successfully.  Of course this does not mean that *everything* is built correctly - currently
_sqlite3, bz2, _tkinter, and _ssl are not build because of several reasons.

If you want me to go online with the buildbot please send me a HOST:PORT and PASSWORD.
