Comment (by mvpel):

 I've committed some updates I worked on last night in the wake of some
 testing with our Buildbot, as well as adding keyword arguments to allow
 the user to define certain aspects of the resource requests and set the
 accounting group and user. I also added the "extra_submit_description" for
 arbitrary directives, and improved the docstrings quite a bit.

 With the ability to specify different resource requests for different
 latent buildslaves, you can set up big ones for larger builders by calling
 for more memory, disk space, and even CPUs, while having the smaller
 builders use a different set of latent buildslaves which request fewer
 resources from the scheduler.
