   Just for reference it currently takes over 1.5hr to run the Cygwin sim builds.  There are
a couple optimizations I can make but I would not expect to shave more than 30%.  WSL is just
Ubuntu so I don't see any reason to duplicate that. 
   The Native builds should be quite a bit faster.

at least, then we have 4VMs for each Windows variants.

   I don't really see any reason we cannot do the nightly build using GitHub Actions we can
easily make the targets conditional on the job and then we don't have to redo all the CI work
and have close to full coverage.
