Nice :)
I suppose one thing people could do [if it were possible] is specify a
windows dependency of the devkit gem if they don't want to have to
compile it themselves [and if it works].

This was with straight git clone then rake--I assume that's 114?

I am wondering if it would be possible to publish "alpha" releases,
like mingw OCI 1.8.7, 1.9.1 preview2, etc.
Just mark them as alpha and warn people about them.
