While the concept looks interesting, I don't know how good a fit it is
for buildbot. The things I noticed
- it uses gevent, not twisted
- It looks like it tries to hide the fact that the calls you are making
  are remote calls, which I think is the wrong approach.

In any case, I think for both master-slave and master-master
communication, we want to use a protocol agnostic interface internally,
which can be implemented in terms of whatever protocol people want to
play with, be it zeromq, amqp, IP-over-carrier-pigeon, etc.
