[Buildbot-devel] combining quick builds and nightly full builds

I have installed and set up the buildbot and it is all working brilliantly
for my projects.  It was pretty simple to do, which I was particularly
pleased about!

I have it set up to run a nightly build+test of a project here.  I have also
set it up with SVNPoller to check our repository for new commits to the
projects, and kick a build off accordingly.  Both processes are working
fine.  I have set up a number of builders to test the code in a variety of
different environments (basically different client websites).

I would like to configure it so that a commit kicks off a quick build (svn
update) rather than a full (rm then svn co) as suggested in the manual, in
order to make builds happen a bit quicker.  At the moment, I have created a
separate builder specifically for quick builds.  Is it possible to avoid the
need for two separate builders, and have buildbot "know" based on what kicks
the build off, whether to update or clobber, or is my current setup the way
everyone else does it?  I couldn't find anything in the manual or google,
but I did notice that the first time I ran a quick build, it deleted any
existing folders and did a checkout, but subsequent forced builds then did
an update, and wondered if it were doing something clever (I couldn't tell
from the source).
