I think these questions should be posted on the mailing list so that 
everybody gets a chance to answer them, not only the people subscribing 
to the particular Wiki page.

Regarding the installation problems on Windows: A while ago I put some 
effort into writing a patch to correct a few build issues on windows. 
Due to unfortunate reasons nobody tried to apply the patch until part of 
it was obsoleted by changes of David M. Cooke to system_info.py. As I 
didn't keep track of David's changes to the build system I asked him for 
advice regarding the integration of my patch, but I never got a reply. 
Seems like I will have to bite the bullet and replicate some of my 
earlier efforts...

Regards,
   Stephan
