[Buildbot-devel] Fwd: have builder fire multiple latent slaves at once

I think that slave startup is throttled as a design feature.  It
wouldn't make sense in most cases to start all slaves just to service
a single request.  However, some additional parameters there might be
useful, similar to what tools like Apache provide: create up to this
many slaves per minute, allow slaves to be idle for this many seconds,
and so on.

You say you're already customizing the code.  Could you further
customize it?  Is that something you'd be willing to share upstream?
