Maybe you could delegate a lot of the testing to competent volunteers?
That would be probably 2 times as much work the first couple of times,
(you'd need to formalize your "script" for testing and then
check that the volunteers are understanding it correctly, etc) but if
they are reliable you could turn that around a lot faster in the future.
 Doesn't Windows have a way to send synthetic GUI events to a
program? There ought to be a way to really script that, as the Python
installer process presumbly doesn't change much from release to release.
