I'm going to have to defer to Rob for the test-signing. I sent a pull
request long ago to make it easier to build WiX with your own strong name
key and he declined it with "It is not a goal to make it easier to build
non-official WiX toolset's to run on other machines. Instead, we'd like to
encourage developers to integrate their changes into our official build."

I'm pretty sure we have not set up LFS for any of the repos. Can you
clarify why we should?
