While I agree the ability to configure a CI system via a web interface
is convenient, I have to admit that what makes me favour buildbot rather
strongly is actually the opposite: the ability to configure
programmatically. Our configurations are so complex that I just can't
afford to rely on a web-only configuration. And as long as Jenkins
supports *only* a web-based configuration, there is no way I will even
try. (I really want to version-control the configuration itself...)
