indeed -- do take a look at conda-forge, they've got all that working.

and while it ultimately calls "conda build this_thing", it wouldn't be hard
to make that a call to build a wheel instead.

hmm -- maybe we could leverage gitHub, like conda-forge does -- Warehouse
would actually push to a repo on gitHub that would then trigger the CI
builds -- though the sure seems cleaner for Warehouse to call teh CIs
