For a while in 2017-2018 I was running ARM64 tests on Scaleway hardware
which appeared in the test matrix. I had the impression no-one ever took
any interest.

It would not be difficult to set this up on AWS ARM instances, though there
would be some costs involved. Interestingly AWS now also has x86 Macs
though they aren't cheap.

If anyone fancies something even more exotic to experiment with, how
about Emscripten / Wasm? In my limited experience, header-only Boost
seems to work OK though I do get a few warnings. It is an interesting
platform these days because it is 32-bit. I think that running tests
on it could be quite a challenge!

Regards, Phil.
