Make it possible to define a cartesian product/matrix for build jobs
Currently we can define a something like a build matrix using a hidden job, and using a YAML format features to inherit configuration. But this means that we have to define each job explicitly. Maybe adding support for defining build jobs dynamically using special configuration entries would save some configuration effort, which may be especially true since we support environments.
rvm: - 1.9.3 - 2.0.0 - 2.2 - ruby-head - jruby - rbx-2 - ree gemfile: - gemfiles/Gemfile.rails-2.3.x - gemfiles/Gemfile.rails-3.0.x - gemfiles/Gemfile.rails-3.1.x - gemfiles/Gemfile.rails-edge env: - ISOLATED=true - ISOLATED=false
This produces 56 individual jobs.

Also, GitHub CI/CD is planning the same feature: https://help.github.com/en/articles/workflow-syntax-for-github-actions#jobsjob_idstrategy
