Perhaps a windows users that is good at installing from source can extend
http://www.gramps-project.org/wiki/index.php?title=Windows_installer
and write a recent (2012) how-to-install gramps from source in windows, so without the installer. Like that it is clear for people who don't want to wait, what they have to do. And we might attrack some developers on windows, that fix bugs before release.

I recently installed scientific software in python on windows (from source), and it are 3 A4 pages to explain how to install it, as opposed to the 1 alinea for installation in linux, so definitely not the easiest path, but possible.

I don't use Windows myself, but let me know if you need any changing the
print statements to use the logging system.
