[Buildbot-devel] Environment variables for a whole builder

I just filed #100 (http://buildbot.net/trac/ticket/100), here's a copy 
of the text:

I think it's a fairly common use case that all of a Builder's BuildSteps 
require the same environment variables. I propose that the Builder 
'setup' should be able to take in a dict of environment variables and 
pass it along to all BuildSteps that require/support it (ie. it wouldn't 
pass it to something like FileDownload).

I'd be happy to code this up myself assuming it is wanted.

Anybody have thoughts on this?
