	I have even fewer slaves.  I have one master for N projects.  I
have one slave for each (os, arch) combination.  Just like the master,
the slaves are shared among the projects.  Yes, a build for project X
can wait on a build for project Y, but since I have M chroots on a
particular box, the machine is already loaded building project Y ;-)
	Really, I could use some flexibility in the other direction.
That is, a page per-scheduler on the master, so my waterfall isn't too
full.  Again, this should all be on one http port, not N ports.
	A cleaner method of matching projects to schedulers would be
nice too.  Currently, I cook up the "log" part of the Change to have the
project name at the top.  Then fileIsImportant() can skim off the top
line and compare for each scheduler.  This works, but a dedicated method
would be better.
