We cannot guarantee that but errors will show up very quickly and
will be usually quickly fixed.

Providing Windows test builds from time to time (e.g. once per week)
is not issue. However, we can NOT provide you "special" builds, that
is, builds containing uncommitted code. And even if you provide us a
weekly diff for committing we could still not guarantee that we would
be able to commit the patch within a defined time frame.

Perhaps it would be possible for you to build a shared library for
Windows which then could be loaded during runtime?
