[Buildbot-devel] how to run buildslave intermittently from cron

I'm trying to run buildslaves on some systems where the sys admins are
not very pleased with me running buildslave permanently in the
background. Oddly to my mind, they will allow me to use cron. I'm
wondering if there's a way for me to set up the buildslave so that
cron could just periodically starts the buildslave, process all
scheduled builds, and then shuts down the buildslave. Has this
situation been encountered by anybody else?
