Yeah, I think it is reasonable to have Ubuntu support. Travis is somewhat
performance limited, so if we ever get more CI hardware of our own I would
expect us to move Ubuntu jobs off Travis. The only key unique thing about
Travis is ability to build on OS-X - we can't easily replicate that ourselves
due to OS-X restrictive licensing.
