Hi, Lieven

Thank you very much for making your code public. I was able to incorporate
it into the Pybots buildbot farm (http://pybots.org), with just a small
change necessary for people running Python 2.3 and earlier. It has to do
with the sort method, which doesn't have the "key" keyword argument in
Python 2.3. Here's my code:

    # We apply Decorate-Sort-Undecorate
    deco = [(build.getTimes(), build) for build in builds]
    builds = [build for (b1, build) in deco]

This replaces this line in Feeder.py:

builds.sort(key=lambda build: build.getTimes(), reverse=True)
