If you don't provide good Windows support and leave it to people who
supposedly do care, you're setting yourself up for a self-fulfilling
prophecy; the Windows people will not be there in the first place.
And you're *lucky* as a project if you hear from people who have trouble
installing it. Most people who have trouble installing your problem will
just silently move on to something else. It makes sense to listen to
these people very carefully when they are there, and even to anticipate
what they might desire - if it's something as obvious as Windows support.
It might also help to just go and read the lxml mailing list. As I see
Laurence just said, Sidnei was talking about working on this very topic
just 4 days ago...
