Again, please see Monkeysign [0] -- it is under active development, and
it aims to address problems 1 and 3 explicitly.

It is written in python, so it is possible that someone who actually
uses a Windows platform and has sufficient motivation and time could
sort out what is needed to port it to a non-unix OS.  If you would like
to help solve these problems, i'm sure the monkeysign developers would
be really happy to have your help.

You can follow up about monkeysign on the monkeysphere mailing list:

Thanks for thinking about and trying to solve these critical problems.
