that looks like one possibility. However, as svn_buildbot.py is invoked
by svn itself (well, via the post-commit shell script), and since svn
itself doesn't have any 'branch' concept, I would have to preprocess
the arguments to figure out the branch in a shell script.

I figure such a pattern matching is much simpler to provide as a python
function, and so I would much prefer a way to write that function
directly into my master.cfg file, if possible.

Kind regards,
