That is entirely correct; however, we have already invested the effort
to build a bridge between Phabricator and CircleCI (only to have
deployment complicated by an apparent Phabricator bug).

The implementation of this didn't take particularly long and I expect
migrating this work to GitLab would be if anything easier (since GitLab
has a more-standard REST interface than Phabricator's Conduit).
