Comment (by Jc2k):

 I'm not sure what would happen in that case - I think i've always disable
 graceful shutdown of slaves by the master.

 One nice thing you can add to this branch is something like this:

 from buildbot import config
     from drmaa import drmaa
 except ImportError:
     drmaa = None

 And then in your {{{___init___}}}:

 if not drmaa:
     config.error("The python module 'drmaa' is needed to use a %s" %

 Then when the user uses {{{buildbot checkconfig}}} they will get a helpful
 error message, rather than a python stack trace.
