I'm not sure that Twitter exposes any API or web service that allows you to programatically register a new application (which you need to do to receive the Consumer Key and Consumer Key Secret).
Even if you could, that still requires the end user to compile the source with a modified build process. Requiring Windows users to compile source code in order to use the app is not a great solution. Any solution to the problem should be as transparent to the user as possible. They shouldn't be burdened with extra steps or procedures because they chose an open source client.

Seems easy enuff.
