I do not know the history here, but I do not see a problem with you setting up a buildbot. Did someone specifically object? 

However, buildbots do require that someone is actively watching them and helping if breakage occurs (ie. developers may not have access to a windows box to reproduce). I think more testing in this area is always good, especially since Windows is not really supported for releases.. its a step in that direction if we have people to support it.
