Or Phabricator, since we as a community have choosen it?  Whatever we choose, 
we can always improve to make it better anyways.

Though I think if we are going to move in this direction, the CI behind it 
needs to be more flexible, like Travis CI I'm thinking (used by many Github 
projects, but is Github specific).  Our current CI is wonderful for our uses, 
just thinking for this grand unified plan.
