Thanks. The more the merrier, and if you do this every night, having a
fairly low-latency "it stopped working" will be good.

Of course, if you can find some other slightly more oddball
configuration that you would also like to test, that it would be even
better.

Because while it's lovely to have more automated testing, if
_everybody_ only tests x86-64 and arm64, the less common cases get
little to no testing.

No big deal, but I thought I'd just mention it in case you go "Yeah, I
know XYZ is entirely irrelevant, but I happen to like it, so I could
easily add that to the testing too".
