Just discussed this at the London wp-hooked meetup, and I think what
I'm going to do is either convert one of the .sh scripts around to
.bat (a useful exercize in learning what it's actually doing, if it
can be converted), or get Cygwin going and go that route. Either way,
I'll post something on my blog that will hopefully plug the gap out
there for people who are looking to do what I'm doing but are as
confused as I was checking out the options posted out there.

Git deployment hooks were mentioned at the meetup, I'll probably check
those out too.

Thanks for all your hints!

Obviously you wouldn't want to deploy every commit to WP.org SVN so you'd want to make your PHP post-receive hook check the most recent commit message includes some text like "... release" or some other keywords that you decide upon that give your script the go-ahead to deploy to git.
