[Buildbot-devel] Pause build idea

I was thinking of implementing a BuildStep that would pause the build process
for specified time if there was a failure in the previous step. I need this so I
can  preserve the test environment for debugging before it's torn down.  I was
thinking of pausing based on the existence of a file so that the build can be
unpaused at any point.  Lastly, pause would wait for X time after timestamp on
said file so developers could touch the file to buy some more time.

Does anything like this exist already? Anyone have any pointers?
