[Buildbot-devel] Testing master.cfg before reconfig

My master.cfg file is a couple of hundred lines long and I'm looking for
a way to allow a change to this file to be tested before updating the
master with a change that may not work.  I'm not sure quite what would
be ideal but my first idea would be something that would allow running
one or more build steps from master.cfg offline so they can be seen to
work.  I saw the post for the config file testing enhancement
http://buildbot.net/trac/ticket/37 but this doesn't seem to run any

Perhaps there's something in the manual I've missed?  What are others
doing to solve this issue?
