[webkit-qt] QtWebKit Windows Bots.

Our Windows bots are currently only building. We previously used Windows 
XP VM images to run these builds, but running the VM images caused a 
major performance slowdown on our server and the build was too slow to 
be feasible (1.5 - 3 hours).
The bots are currently cross-comiling with mingw on Linux.

I think it would be possible to create a Windows 7 environment for 
building, but this bot would be much slower than the current one since 
we do not have extra hardware for this. I think separating builder and 
tester bots for this platform would make running layout tests also 
possible, but the test environmet still needs some work, since we never 
seriously tried to run tests on Windows.

We'll discuss this with Ossy and try to figure out a solution.
