This looks like a great tutorial if you know what your dependencies are ahead of time, but for my use case I don't.  I want to be able to dynamically trigger downstream builds when a build is depended upon by another project, and I want to track the dependencies dynamically.  I think I want to have a builder set properties indicating the artifact that it creates and the artifacts it depends on.  I think I know how to go about doing this (the properties are pretty straightforward), but I don't know how to access other builders and their builds from a build step.
