[Buildbot-devel] Non-fatal disconnects?

The GHC project has just set up a buildbot:
http://darcs.haskell.org/buildbot/all/. The single biggest problem we have is
that some of our clients get accidentally disconnected during a build, probably
the main reason being flaky firewall setups. There's not a lot we can do about
this, unfortunately. Builds take several hours, making it all the more likely
that a disconnect occurs during a build.
I wonder if it would be possible to make transient disconnections non-fatal,
such that a disconnection wouldn't interrupt an ongoing build, as long as the
connection was restored within a suitably short time period? I think this would
be our #1 feature request as far as improving our buildbot experience goes.
