I just opened bug 880 (http://buildbot.net/trac/ticket/880) to split
the slave and the master into separate packages.  This has a bunch of

1. slave doesn't require Jinja and SQLite
2. slave is a much smaller install
3. slave can run on a wider variety of systems (e.g., Cygwin)

I'm not entirely sure what the best way to manage a multi-package
Python project is, though - if you know of any other projects that
have multiple packages, please point me to them as an example!
