Pausing, Killing, and Rebooting would be useful, I think.  Pausing is
the most useful because it means you can safely change the
configuration, or possibly just pause the build while you fix whatever
is causing the build to fail.  It would be great if this was
accessible from the web page (I have no security concerns currently).

I'm not sure if it is on the TODO list, but the ability to shutdown
the master cleanly (and all the slaves) also would be useful, e.g.
when you change the source code.
