You should use virtualenv to isolate all of your different
combinations.  You can see a little bit of how I've used virtualenv

I would then make a builder for each combination you want to test,
passing whatever parameters are required to the buidlslave.  The
buildslave should fix up a virtualenv sandbox for itself (using a
sandbox it finds already, if the right things are installed), and then
run the tests in that sandbox.

This reduces the need for the slaves to have a particular
configuration, and also means that you can test multiple versions
simultaneously on the same slave, if necessary.
