Thank you for clearing that up, makes a lot more sense now.
So the goal on my end seems to be as such:
Install all dependencies for tahoe
Install / build tahoe-lafs
Deploy tahoe-lafs introducer + server nodes
Build tahoe-w32-client (if so desired)
(documenting along the way of course)
Thanks again, gives me some things to do during any down time tomorrow.

That software is Tahoe-LAFS, v1.5.0. It works fine on Windows (if
you can get it built). It behaves the same way as it does on all
other platforms: you can create a gateway node using the "tahoe
create-client" command, use the command-line tools such as "tahoe cp"
and "tahoe backup", use the WUI, etc. To do so, start here: http://
allmydata.org/source/tahoe/trunk/docs/install.html (and mentally
prepare yourself to help us out with tickets like #756 and #781).
The other thing that Peter mentioned is "Tahoe-W32-Client": http://
Tahoe-W32-Client is an application that requires Tahoe-LAFS, and adds
to it a Virtual Drive which is integrated into the Windows
filesystem, so that you can drag and drop files into and out of Tahoe-
LAFS using your Windows file explorer or your cmd.exe commands such
as "cp" and "move". Tahoe-W32-Client also comes with a GUI installer
so that you can have the pleasure of looking at pretty colored
windows and buttons while installing.
These facts ought to be wiki-ed up... Maybe here: http://
allmydata.org/trac/tahoe-w32-client/wiki and http://allmydata.org/
http://allmydata.org/trac/tahoe/ticket/756 # if pywin32 has been
manually installed, setuptools still doesn't detect it
http://allmydata.org/trac/tahoe/ticket/781 # wanted: Windows Packaging
