Originally it was using a loop like that for the tests, but for some
reason not all of the Python versions I wanted to build for were being
tested that way (it was only doing 3.7 and 3.8). I figure I might as
well use ARCH then, makes it a bit clearer.

Ah, thank you for that link, that clears things up for me. I didn't
realise I could do that. So, I can just set PYTHON_WHEEL_VERSIONS to
"3.6:3.7:3.8" to build for those versions? I guess I don't need the
custom functions that way, that would make things simpler.

So far I've built for Python 3.6 and newer, should I also be building
for 3.5 or are we not bothered at this point?

You're welcome, and thanks for the advice :)
