My fix was actually to keep VS2015 on AppVeyor and leave VS2017 to
VSTS, that way we get pre-commit coverage on both compilers.  There
shouldn't be any caching issues between branches, since PCbuild is
sufficiently different between each branch.  I wish there was a cache
per branch, but there doesn't seem to be.
