[Buildbot-devel] [patch] portable pathsep for PYTHONPATH

oh, there's probably a patch tracker on sf.net, isn't there.  should I
be using that?

slave.ShellCommand has a little special case for PYTHONPATH, which is
very useful, but if you specify PYTHONPATH as "foo:bar" in master.cfg
and your windows buildslave wants it to be "foo;bar", you have problems.

The attached patch lets you specify it as ["foo", "bar"] and then pastes
it together with the appropriate os.pathsep on the slave's side,
although you do have to make sure you upgrade *all* your builders if you
do that in your master.cfg, as it is an incompatible change.

...and with that, I actually have buildbot testing our Python libraries
on win32.  Hooray!
