Just to add one voice, we're going to be heavily using LLVM on Windows  
soon. I was very happy to see your CMake work since we were planning  
on doing something similar once we were going to be building on  
Windows regularly, and would really like a consistent build system  
across Linux/OS X/Windows.

Once we get there we'll be happy to pitch in with an effort like this.  
If you come up with something, we may be able to set up some nightly  
test machines in the short term for various versions of Windows and  
compilers. Email me privately if you're interested.
