[Buildbot-devel] usebranches work going into CVS trunk

Oh, and I forgot to mention: the new test_vc code now creates its own
repositories on the fly, rather than using pre-built ones (in other words,
the buildbot-test-vc-1.tar.gz tarball from the web site is now obsolete).
This means that the buildbot's unit test suite takes a bit longer to run
(about 2 minutes on my home machine), but it gets much better test coverage
of VC-related things, like obtaining source code from a branch, or from
specific revisions.

More VC systems installed means better test coverage. We've got CVS, SVN,
Arch (both tla and bazaar), and Darcs. We're a quarter of the way to handling
Monotone too, and I have cogito and 'mercurial' on the list of ones to add.
(we have basic cogito support now, as well as Perforce, but no unit tests).
