I think this is great for builds and tests, but only for the environments that Travis CI supports. If we want to do cross-platform pre-commit testing then we're still going to need to update the build-bots somehow to be "trigger-able" if that's the intent. If the intent is to do it post-commit, it's not as valuable IMO.

Note that the open-source package for Travis CI ends up running on very limited hardware [1].
