[Buildbot-devel] Nice 5 minute tutorial

I'd like to frame this a bit more carefully.  New users get pretty
focused on the tutorial, and when the slightest thing seems out of
whack, it really throws them off.  In this patch, it reads as an
extension of the tour.

I'd think this would feel more natural, and like less of a promise, if
it was described as one of several contributed Buildbot tutorials,
meant to illustrate the tool's power and flexibility.  That shouldn't
take too much additional text.

The text about the SVN change source will need some updating, too, as you noted.

+Continue on to :ref:`five-minutes-label`
This can be :doc:`fiveminutes` instead; at any rate, there's no need
to add "-label" there.. that's akin to "def
startBuild_function(self_variable): .." :)
