I certainly don't mind scratching my own itch, just like to check first 
to make sure no one's already been there :-)

By the way, sorry for the lack of contributions from me the past few 
months. You all have been great and really helpful. Buildbot is a really 
great and flexible tool with a solid architecture.

It's a little tricky with my employer, but I'm hoping to put a package 
together of my various tweaks, hacks, and updates/enhancements to feed 
back in case they're useful to anyone. It's easier if I find a good 
point to package everything up at once for approval -- hopefully that 
point will be approaching soon.
