[forge-dev] Running the build on Windows

Hey Daniel,

The idea of this effort is just to make sure Forge tests run locally on
Windows. And then to investigate why the central build fails. I.e. first
clean up your own garden and only then look in the public park ;)

If you have any special issues with Aesh, please share them (probably in
another thread). I also had some, but I thought they were resolved. The
thing is that I don't use Windows at home any more (switched to Fedora), so
I can't catch problems with the rate I used to do before ;)
