I only looked at the example -- for Puppet, I consider that an "API"
for the module, which IMHO is the hardest part about writing a Puppet

It looks good!

My thought would be, it would be helpful if you could select the
buildbot install to use for each buildbot/buildslave instance.  So you
could have the production master installed in
/home/buildbot/production/master and the test master installed in
/home/buildbot/test/master, using virtualenvs at
/home/buildbot/production/install and /home/buildbot/test/install,

I do a lot of Puppet for Mozilla (see
https://wiki.mozilla.org/ReleaseEngineering/PuppetAgain), so if I can
help with puppety stuff, let me know (but if it's not particularly
buildbot-related, let's do it off-list).

I'd be happy to see a link to your module from the Buildbot wiki.
Feel free to add one.
