I've got a half-dozen BuildFactories, each used by a couple of Builders. 
   In the beginning I ran all the buildslaves, but now we're starting to 
have random developers volunteer to run slaves.  I want to add a 
BuildStep to the beginning of each of my factories to show the 
configuration that the buildslave is running with (gcc version, kernel 
version, etc).

Is it allowed to create a single BuildStep to determine this and add 
that one BuildStep to the beginning of each of my existing 
BuildFactories, or do I need to create a separate (identical) BuildStep 
instance for each BuildFactory instance?
