Yes, absolutely! I think this will actually not be _too_ difficult for
Linux (because docker). The challenges for Windows
and OS X are more significant.  For the open source communities that I'm
involved in, Travis-CI has really made everyone much more aware and
comfortable with Linux container-based web services that compile our
packages, so
a PyPI wheel farm seems very much within reach over the next year or so.
