Move Windows CI to GitHub Actions

Launchpad Bug:


GitHub? offers free hosted CI supporting several platforms including Windows ("Windows Server 2019").

Tahoe-LAFS currently uses Appveyor. Appveyor is a great free (and paid) Windows CI service. However, Appveyor is kind of slow and has a weird configuration system. Additionally, Appveyor refuses to update GitHub? with build results. Thus, when Windows support breaks, from GitHub? it still looks like everything is working. This goes a long way towards defeating the purpose of CI.

Thus, replace Appveyor with GitHub? actions for Windows CI so that we actually have Windows CI information visible on GitHub? PRs.

GitHub? Actions documentation is very ... fresh.

Examples can be instructive. Here is one such: https://github.com/Julian/jsonschema/tree/master/.github/workflows
