Sounds good, and we (Kitware) will maintain it, as long as our tools are
used (i.e. ctest).

Also true, but will take some more effort than 1 (since we already have
1 working...). Might be a bit harder to maintain as the html
locations/formats might change with different versions of VS.. However,
it does sound like a good thing to do, just not real high on my list at
the moment since we have a working solution right now.
