This is a best practice for a Buildbot *deployment*, but I think in a
case where we can come to a rough consensus on how this should be
implemented in Buildbot itself, it makes sense to bake that
functionality into the application.

One of the advantages to putting logic master-side is that it's much
easier for us to customize, fix, or extend the functionality in future
releases, without requiring difficult compatibility work between
master and slave.
