It does not really address my point: I agree with Jason that we
probably have enough people pretesting Windows binaries _built_

The idea was to have people testing Windows binaries built by the same
process and on the same computer that will get used for the final
release.  It would be embarrassing, for example, if we figured out
after the final release of the binaries that _this_ machine had no or
insecure image libraries.

Using the same process _including_ the same machine and installation
for pretest and release makes sure that such things have a chance to
become apparent during the pretest.
