I'd be happy with starting with just a source solution, but I think a
binary one is definitely needed and can be simplified with TravisCI --
it'll build with multiple Erlang versions.

I really wish I could plugin to the hosted TravisCI to have a job run to
publish artifacts. I only briefly looked into that, so maybe something
there is possible.
