Scheduled builds optionally use different yml file

TLDR: Allow scheduled builds to use a different appveyor.yml.

I was looking into setting up coverity and one of the suggestions was to use a scheduled build to work around the frequency limits. While I certainly could modify my appveyor.yml file, the modifications are ugly. Secondly, for a coverity build I won't be producing artifacts, running tests, or sending to Sonar. Basically the majority og my yml file. It would be great if scheduled builds could use a different yml. That was I could just have a simple build\run coverity yml.

    Hi Mike,

    Why not create second AppVeyot project targeting the same repo and tune it to use different YAML file? It is in Settings > General > Custom configuration .yml file name.
