Well, as Dan said, probably better to do it in a script that's in the
source-code repository.  The problem with embedding build logic in
Buildbot is that (a) when it goes bad, your developers can't debug it
and (b) when it needs to change, you have to adjust the buildbot
config, rather than checking code into the repository.
