I haven't tried this myself, but what about just factoring out the
common build steps?  E.g. if you are using 0.7.6:

  clobber_step = ShellCommand(name="clobber", command=["clobber"])

Obviously if you have many such common steps, it might be worthwhile
to factor them out as a list and add them to each factory in a loop.
Or maybe not, if the selection/order of common build steps varies from
factory to factory.  It's up to you.  Nice having a high-level
general-purpose programming language to write config files in, isn't
it?  Can you imagine doing this in XML?  >shudder<
