While I'm a big fan of Boost's test system, and believe that it is an
awesome resource that can't be replicated on the common CI services (lots
of platforms and compiler versions/configs!), I also think that good
per-commit CI on a service like travis is hugely important. Maybe someone
should present a proposal to the steering committee to start paying for
boostorg's account to have additional build resources?
