I do that for Windows because installing VS is an order of magnitude more difficult than installing gcc on Linux/UNIX but again: not willing to do extra work on that front (sorry).

He may accept a PR with Travis configuration to build the wheels though ... Using that manylinux docker image should be easy enough on Travis.​

​On the other hand, there might be weird dependencies and the wheel don't build well on the manylinux container - so there's still some extra effort​ for the maintainer.

A simpler package would probably make a better discussion.

PS. To  build all the manylinux wheels for a package you only need to run something like:
docker run -itv $(pwd):/code quay.io/pypa/manylinux1_x86_64 bash -c 'set -eux; cd code; rm -rf wheelhouse; for variant in /opt/python/*; do rm -rf dist build *.egg-info && $variant/bin/python setup.py clean --all bdist_wheel; auditwheel repair dist/*.whl; done; rm -rf dist build *.egg-info'
