Actually editing html.py will leave the IRC 'force build' command enabled.
You'd have to disable that separately, by commenting out command_FORCE in
buildbot/status/words.py .

In CVS, both kinds of 'force build' are currently broken, becuase the IStatus
object that html.py and words.py use is "read only". I plan to add a new
IControl interface (or something) which will bring that functionality back.
In doing that, my vague plan is to add an allowForceBuild= flag to both
Waterfall() and IRC() that will enable/disable those routines I suggested you
comment out.
