The new wheels will go up on pypi, and I guess once everyone has
wheels on pypi then these ad-hoc wheel servers that existed only as a
way to distribute Linux wheels will become obsolete.

(travis-dev-wheels will remain useful, though, because its purpose is
to hold up-to-the-minute builds of project master branches to allow
downstream projects to get early warning of breaking changes -- we
don't plan to upload to pypi after every commit :-).)
