This is a shortcoming of the current buildbot architecture.  The only
workaround I know is to run multiple buildmaster processes.  That's
what we do.  I've been toying with the idea of running multiple
BuildMaster services inside a single application (by futzing with the
buildbot.tac), but that's a pretty awful hack, and still requires each
slave machine to run a buildslave instance for each buildmaster.

We're about to add a half-dozen additional buildmasters, and each
buildmaster process already has a virtual size of 0.5G, so I'm a
little worried about this issue, too :)
