I'd be willing to give this a shot as far as 1) goes, and 3) to the
best of my abilities (for programmers I have, or can easily build or
cheaply acquire.) I don't, however, really see the necessity for point
2. Typically, non-Windows platforms have either a compiler available
or a package management system, if not both. Except perhaps OSX, which
is the platform I have the least experience using avrdude on. The
reason this makes sense for Windows is the lack of those things on a
typical user system (compiler and sane package management.)
