[Buildbot-devel] how to have more than one builder/buildslave?

I have a generic task that I have a builder for (let's call it
"testrunner"). We need to run several instances of this task
simultaneously. Right now, I run several buildslaves on a single
machine so that each of those buildslaves can run an instance of the
testrunner builder. The testrunner builder is quite low-impact, a
single machine can easily handle many instances of it. It's a pretty
awkward situation to have to have a buildslave for each one, and we
need to scale further...
What would be involved in getting the same buildslave to run more than
one copy of a builder? Obviously, I have to set the base directory so
that they don't stomp on each other... but I don't know where else to
poke or what might be involved. How hard will this be?
