There's a hook in BuildFactory to set the treeStableTimer on the Builds it's
creating. Just do:

f = factory.BuildFactory(steps)
f.treeStableTimer = 10*60 # ten minutes
builders.append( { ..., 'factory': f } )

(this is another reason the treeStableTimer is being moved to the Scheduler)

BTW, the default treeStableTimer is 10 seconds, so for anything other than a
"quick" Builder, you'll want set it to something larger.

Hm, I've never actually tried to convert it to HTML. What tool did you use?
I'll fix that and then stick a copy of the docs up on the web page.
