Comment (by Ben):

 I'm slowly wrapping my head around that concept, was wondering what
 advantage it would bring, or how could we integrate Docker as a slave or
 such ... What would help me most would be a blog post to lay down some
 basis I guess, then, once I got a clear idea of the possible links between
 Docker and buildbot, I could try to think about binding them as a Latent
 slave ...

 In that direction, the drone project (drone.io) is based around Docker
 slave, they provide some base image, and you just tell in your config
 which one you wanna use ... Something like that ?
