I fail to see what `official' binary releases add.  I'd much rather see 
the GnuPG team spend time working on GnuPG than releasing binaries for 
any and all systems.  If someone else is willing to take over releasing 
Windows binaries from Werner et al., I think that it's a good move.  
Besides, I have no idea how much the GnuPG team knows about Windows, but 
you're probably better off having someone who knows Windows really well 
releasing a binary/installer than someone in the GnuPG team.
