If the notion of patching Buildbot for a not-so-popular VCS is not  
desirable, then the potential problems from a plugin interface might  
not be much better.

With the Buildbot source tree in Git, it shouldn't be too hard to  
maintain a fork on GitHub (or even hosted somewhere else) to support  
other VCSes. The maintainers for those forks would still need to keep  
tabs on Buildbot trunk developments.

Or am I missing a hidden benefit of plugins?
