I'm incorporating parts of your patch in now, during the build-on-branch
developement I'm trying to finish up before 0.7.0 can get released. If
enabled, you'll be able to build a specific branch and/or revision from web
page or via the IRC bot.

I've updated CVS to use the new 'requestBuildSoon' method instead of
'forceBuild', so I'm implementing this on the HTML/IRC side by varying the
way the SourceStamp is constructed.

The only major functional difference is that if no revision is specified, the
SourceStamp revision= argument should get None rather than a SVN/CVS-specific
"HEAD" value.
