This would work too, especially if everything is offloaded to a script. But
it does have the drawback that if you have to edit the appveyor.yml for some
reason (a new os: option is added or something like that) you now have O(N)
.yml files to change.

On the other hand, my suggested approach seems to have another drawback -
there's only one Travis job and if we overload it to both perform CI testing
and building a release, it could fail for either reason, which could make
handling notifications problematic.
