Ah, that's a relief :)

Part of what we're heading for in nine is that almost all data in
Buildbot is write-once.  The exceptions are non-key fields for things
like completion and results (on steps, builds, buildrequests, and
buildsets) and claims (buildrequests).  This makes it a lot easier to
reason about objects between the database and messages.

So I was a little freaked out at the suggestion that's not the case for builds!
