[Buildbot-devel] Feature request: button on the waterfall to start a "waiting" build

Hello folks,

I've set up the buildbot so that it waits 10 minutes when a commit is done,
however, in some cases, I know that I won't commit anymore for now but I'd like
the buildbot to start the build *now* so that I can see if it works before going
any further. That's why I'd like to have a button on the waterfall interface to
tell the buildbot "don't bother to way anymore, start the build now."

I know I could set up the "quick build" and "full build" scheme recommended in
the BuildBot manual, however I have many projects and few machines with little
horse power (in term of CPU and RAM) and I can't really afford quick builds for
all commits.

Most of my colleagues would also find such a feature nice to have that's why I
thought I'd ask it here... just in case :) Thanks.
