Your example is obviously a simplified version of whatever it is you'd
like to accomplish so I can't be sure that I am under the correct
impression of your goal, but if you're trying to run your build via
buildbot I think you should consider keeping the python code you want
to execute under source control.  I try to keep any code needed for
the build process in source control and not in buildbot itself to
ensure that any dev on the team can perform all necessary steps for
the build on their local machine.  Unless there's something unique to
what you're trying to accomplish, this is what I would advise.
