When I did that a while back, I got stuck with the fact that
fileIsImportant does keep the scheduler from triggering, the changes
will be included in the build request from the ignoring scheduler,
though. So if you really want to fork one change to one scheduler, and
another in another, and not see those changes in the other build
process, you'll need to hack deeper.
