Yes, we tried using the Windows slave on builds.a.o.  After spending way
too much time begging Infra to install and configure custom things we
needed and then having them choose versions of Jenkins that busted our
builds, we switched to using my VM at apacheflexbuilds.cloudapp.net and
have had very few issues since.  It does not make sense to me to share a
Windows build machine with other projects that may have conflicting needs
for versions of dependencies.

And there was no way I could have logged into builds.a.o and debug over
RDP some problem where a test only failed on the build machine.

So, IMO, we don’t want to have builds.a.o try to run scripts that do GUI
tests, but even Squiggly really should have GUI tests some day.  Is it
possible that the “build” that runs on builds.a.o does not compile source
code or runs tests, but instead grabs artifacts from apacheflexbuilds and
packages things?  Or I suppose it could grab a known good source package
from apacheflexbuilds and then run against that and skip tests.
