yes, bb has a locking mechanism.
but afaik it is not possible to start/shutdown slaves via this 
functionality. all slaves that woant to run the build have to be started 
at buildtime, ozherwise the builder just chooses the next avalable slave 
from its list, and also i don't think the builder is shutting down it's 
slave while waiting for a lock.
