[Buildbot-devel] How to disable some of the child nodes in WebStatus?

Is there any interest in a patch that disables some of the child nodes 
('grid', 'tgrid', ...) in the WebStatus class?

Our company's Buildbot instance has grown over the time and now hosts more 
than 100 builders on one single buildmaster. Builders are scattered among 
multiple projects/repositories. In this scenario, the 'grid' and 'tgrid' views 
of WebStatus get fairly useless (because of the different repositories). It 
also takes quite an amount of time to load those pages the first time. Hence 
I'd like to just get rid off them on our instance, because noone uses them 

So, I wonder if someone minds a patch that allows "blocking" the creation of 
some of the child nodes in WebStatus.setupUsualPages? The easiest way 
(obviously) is passing a list of strings to WebStatus.__init__ which contains 
the names of the blacklisted children.

Other ideas?
