Build configurations

We have a big test suite, which include long-running tests (30 mins). We don't want to execute long-running tests by default in our appveyor.yml. I created a PS cmdlet that can trigger a build and specify environment variable to allow long-running tests execution. It mostly works, but there is no way to distinguish regular [fast] build from one that includes long-running tests, except time of execution. It's inconvenient. If I would add another option for build, it would become confusing. One solution would be ability to generate build number (or maybe some label, or title of build, which is currently the last commit message) based on environment variables. Then I can capture this info, search by it, etc. TeamCity or Jenkins analog would be build configurations.

Any chance to see some support for described scenario?

    Let me clarify. Are you looking for an ability to add some additional meta-information to builds?
