Yeah, I like that better. It will take some hacking to make it work, but I've
personally been bitten by forgetting to add a new Builder to my 'all'
scheduler, so having them driven the other way around makes a lot of sense.

I'll see if I can figure out a good way to implement it. The 'scheduler' key
would probably take a list of schedulers, but we could also have it take a
single string if you only had one.

FYI, I'm starting to think the c['builders'] list should be a list of Builder
objects instead of dictionaries, for consistency with the rest of the config
file. There are some problems with making such a transition, though, so I
still need to think about it a bit first.
