I didn't review your doc since I don't know what's easy possible.  But
I can tell you what I want to see on python's bb. 

I think we've got 15 slaves on 2 branches and we can't see much info. 
I'd rather a horizontal rather than vertical display.  A file is
attached to preserve formatting.  All the text would be links to
details.  The idea is that I can see every branch for every slave.  If
everything is green, I don't need to drill down any further.  All the
details are just a click away.

And while I'm here, I would like if the changes were grouped together
in the next batch.  Since the tests take an hour + to run, some slaves
get really far behind.  It would be nice to aggregate outstanding
changes into a batch even if they didn't arrive within the same five

-------------- next part --------------
Slave   Branch  Status  Last 5 Run Results
-----   ------  ------  ------------------

        trunk    idle    passed passed passed ...
slave 1
         2.4     build          passed failed ...

        trunk    failed  failed passed passed passed ...
slave 2
         2.4     build          passed failed ...


Passed/failed would be appropriate colors like now.  Status is similar
to now (probably the same).

I'm not sure if I wan the slaves grouped as above or the branches grouped.
there would be other columns like times and other info.
