FWIW, I would consider building with MSVC a non-goal unless its feature
set has massively improved to support the various GCC extensions we rely
on. I've always assumed that only target compilers which support GCC C
dialect, which basically means GCC or CLang or Intel CC and not MSVC.

Aside from that, I'd be happy to see addition of more CI environments if
they cover platforms / combinations we don't already touch. In particular
I think it would be useful to see some non-x86 architectures covered.
