Do you want to have a buildslave shared between multiple builders? You can,
but the builders don't have a shared queue so you can get into the situation
where a builder is waiting on a buildslave that's in use by another builder
even though there are idle slaves waiting.

Not sure if I'm understanding though; can you describe what you want to do?
