 Maintaining the HHVM test infrastructure on Travis takes a
 disproportionately high amount of effort. Particularly because the HHVM

 * Is in the allowed failures list
 * Has never passed
 * Often errors

 Given the exceptionally low usage numbers of HHVM, support in the Travis
 test suite should be removed.

 The PHP world owes a lot to HHVM for helping it push it forward. Without
 HHVM, maybe we wouldn't have seen such incredible performance gains in PHP
 7. Thank you, HHVM.
