Very nice.

You know that we already have Dockers for Arch and Ubuntu-14.04 (Arch because it's always bleeding-edge, Ubuntu originally because that's what Travis-CI supported before Docker came along and latterly because it's a good representative of the oldest dependencies supported for the 3.x series). They're in utils/ci. Travis-CI builds are at https://travis-ci.org/Gnucash/gnucash/builds/

IIUC Travis-CI doesn't do Windows and we need to set up an Appveyor instance for that. Does Appveyor use Docker?
