Another example would be to have a 'doc' builder only trigger when 
something is checked into the 'document directories'.
This 'could' be done in 2 ways:
* check the changeset for changes in the document tree
* generate a changeset based upon a 'doc-commit' mail and 'trigger' only 
'doc builders'

The last one would probably be closest to what I think I want :)
