Speaking as one of those using Windows primarily for reasons of work and games.  I will note that I only care that tools are available for Windows users.  CMD line or otherwise I don't care if they are GUI.  If there are tons of switches, then I can make batch files with the switches preseelcted.  
As long as there are tools that run Windows, then I don't care.  I only would like something to be selected so I can go about learning it.
Whatever we pick, I plan on making my co-workers learn it so we can control our inhouse administative scripts at work and avoid learning more.  As I am lazy, I plan on learning only one of them :).

I could set up the contrib repository if you want. and I am happy to
have darcs running on my web site. The only thing is that the web front
end sometime gets killed by the dreamhost house keeping because darcs is
a little cpu hungry sometimes.

This can all be done, I am just not really up to speed on what happens
on the backend for the current drupal cvs setup.

But because every darcs repository is a working system then we could
actually have with very little work a automated test suite that gets run
after every commit.

Not exactly sure if we could do this this contrib, but it could be done.
