This is a problem with arrangement where BuildStep objects are their
own factories.

This is how my constructor looks:

 17     def __init__(self, command, **kwargs):
 18         BuildStep.__init__(self, **kwargs)
 19         self.addFactoryArguments(command=command)
 20         self.command=command

On a larger note, I have a MasterShellCommand class that I'll get
committed shortly, which may do what you need.
