Yes, I just want to be able to have a buildslave shared between multiple
builders.  I plan on having my builders targetted to a specific buildslave,
so I think I'm okay with the queuing issue you describe.

So, I can accomplish what I want by simply defining more than one builder to
use the same buildslave?  That sounds too easy :-)
