Yes, that is the reason I didn't update the current links for Debian 
daily snapshots. Although I'm not sure if they are still been generated 
(by aquadran?), with date of 15th March 2009 for last builds.

I already stated (via email and mailing list), that I will continue to 
produce the Windows snapshot manually. As a real person, still offers 
advantages over an automated system, that can break down (ie buildbot 
running out of disk space earlier today).

I don't think it is possible to compile the installer script (Inno 
Setup) use for Windows builds, via linux anyway.

Using a zip file for Windows builds would be going backwards too, I 
switched to an installer long ago, due to requests to make it easier for 
Windows users to install.
