[Buildbot-devel] BuildBot, twisted reactor and dynamic config

Hi all,

I'm currently using BuildBot in a personal project and I'm looking into
doing dynamic config.

First of all a disclaimer: I know that the documented way of doing this is
to make a change and then tell BuildBot to restart.

That being said I'm currently looking at more complex methods involving
concurrency and the twisted reactor. However I could do with knowing a few
more things or knowing the best place to look.

1. Does the BuildBot configuration object store the items in some way that
would prevent a dynamic dictionary of some form?

2. Can all items that use the configuration object handle twisted defer

3. How difficult is it to customize and modify the web status to add auth
(via twisted.cred).

4. Other than the "magic" URL's described in the docs are there any other
undocumented gotchas to watch out for?
