Part of the problem with the Windows build is that developers upgrade
dependencies to meeting the trunk recommendations/requirements. Then
the new versions aren't supported by the old releases. The build bots
have exactly the same problem. Our response to this has been to
simply turn off the features that require the dependencies.

If we were to setup a guest VM for each branch with stable
dependencies that match either the version that ships with a given
target OS or that matches our recommended version, then this would
probably be fine. Combine this with the buildbot actually running
every test, (fs x ra) + bindings, would actually give me more
confidence in the build bot tests than us individually running tests.
Not so much because I don't trust us as because I know not everyone is
running absolutely every test.
