	Thanks, I may go that route. I've been going through the code trying to see how to works. 
Looks like the master side should work by specifying a port specification like:


I think the slave side needs some changes to make this work, as it explicitly opens 
TCPClient in buildbot/slave/bot.py. I've hacked that a bit, replace that call with a 
ClientConnectionFactory and SSSClinet, but its not working yet. Still trying to understand 
how twisted and buildbot work :)
