I'll take a look, thanks!

I'm a tad sceptical at the abuse for branches.

What I'd really like is to be able to set arbitrary key/value pairs in
Changes, maybe by loading a dict into them.

The sign dep scheduler doesn't kick off because it's watching the

Ah yeah I wasn't thinking; I had it set up for the "branch abuse" way of
triggering builds, not for dep_scheduler-to-dep_scheduler. Thank you!

I think that making Changes more flexible would be good, I'll work on
something like this, hopefully others would be interested in Changes that
come from non-VCS sources (I know I am, especially for release automation
purposes, but also for things like polling to see when a build is available
to start performance tests).
