[Buildbot-devel] Starting slaves on demand?

I'd like to setup some slaves that can be started on need from the
master. The context is that I want to use the http://pipol.inrialpes.fr/
machines to run tests, but they have to be first reserved for a while
when you want to use them and then rebooted on the operating system you
want to use. 

My idea was to subclass BuildSlave to let it reboot the slave node and
start a buildbot slave when a job is intended to run on this machine,
but I'm not quite sure that this is a good idea given my limited
abilities in python.

Did someone have an easier solution for such a situation?

Thanks in advance,
