I think this is a very good idea. In the past few days I've thought
along these lines too, for example, it would be great if the installer
could set up svnserve as a service on Windows. But I think it would be
better if the experinemtal installer used binaries from trunk, too -- to
make sort of a development snapshot, maybe every two weeks or so. I can
take care of creating the binaries. Also I suggest we put this temporary
stuff into a different folder -- I'll set it up right now -- and the
package name should contain the revision from which the binaries were built.
