I think the usual mantra here is to use a script that is kept in  
version control, and checked out in a prior source step. This keeps  
the Buildbot configuration simple, and lets you go back to build old  
revisions without having to roll the Buildbot configuration as well.

Not sure exactly what you're looking for, though. Do you want the  
build logs for each command to be separate, but all listed in a  
single buildstep on the waterfall?
