This means that it won't be available in the Windows nightlies either
(unless there are plans to build master nightlies, currently there is only
an empty 3.4 folder)

This will have to be implemented at some point. And the unexpected
consequences will have to rise at some point. If not now then for 3.5... Why
post-pone it? :)

I see your point. But maybe loosing a weekend would be compensated by
getting more Beta testers and more feedback?

It's always a trade off :)
