Comment (by tom.prince):

 While this sounds interesting, I think it is outside the scope of buildbot
 proper. One difficulty is that buildbot's data model doesn't support a
 sourcestamp having multiple branches, so that there is no way to
 communicate to the source step that it should check out multiple branches.

 There is also the issue of how to handle merge conflicts

 One way to handle this would be to follow what github does with pull
 requests. For each pull request, github exposes two heads, one for the tip
 of the pull request, and one for the result of merging it (assuming that
 it merges cleanly).
