First and foremost question is *what* to run as integration tests,
rather than on what platforms. I think we need to define what use cases
we care for in the form of integration tests. 
The more conveniently the integration tests are packaged, the higher is the probability of
anyone running them.
The good example is the "smoke tests" included with DRLVM: they can be built and run
with a single command 'build.bat test' ('build.sh test' on Linux).

Once the integration test set is defined, we can think of platform coverage.
BuildBot [1] could be the way to interested parties to contribute CPU cycles
to verify Harmony quality.
