I'd be happy to help with keeping these (or any other) buildbots running,
but I'm not much of a Windows geek (I can work with it, but I know a _lot_
more about Linux).  Same goes for OS/X, though since that is unix based
I'm a little more comfortable with it.

I guess what I'm saying is, if you don't get responses from more
Windows-savvy developers, then let me know and I'll be glad to help.

That said, the idea of EC2 buildslaves seems pretty attractive...
