That looks like a good solution. What I did not see about Trigger is that it
can trigger several schedulers at once, and wait for everyone to finish
before succeeding.
What Trigger does not do is to let user choose to cancel other parallel
builder at the first fail.
Looking at the code, it should be easy to change.
