[Buildbot-devel] Factories and filters

I'm not sure whether this will still be relevant with the new
sceduler, but I'm having an annoying problem with the filtering of the

Currently I'm subclassing Build and overriding isFileImportant(). 
Unfortunately, this means that each time I reload the master config,
it thinks that all the factories have changed.

This happens because the build class is being defined in master.cfg,
so each time master.cfg is re-loaded, the class is re-defined and is
no longer equal to the old class.

If I move the build class into another module, then changes to my
filters won't be noticed when I reload the config.

Has anyone found a solution to this conundrum?
