yeah improving windows coverage might be a nice thing - some other
random thoughts might include:
*) a linux x86_64 box with say the non-commercial version of icc (intel
c compiler)
*) recent netbsd/amd64
*) solaris 10/x86 - gcc and sun studio
*) maybe solaris express/opensolaris?
*) as said early we don't seem to have any suse/novell coverage at all

though generally the x86/x64_86 coverage seems to be quite good

there are more obscure and rare platforms(both in terms  that might be a
win for the buildfarm but HP-UX is really missing.
