There's a pretty generic and working solution I've been using for several
months already. This solution is basically extracting the current env of a
step into a property (using SetProperty + some extract_fn), which can then
just be reused in consecutive steps.
It has been discussed on SO: http://stackoverflow.com/a/17721123
PS: I'm all for bringing some native support for this in Buildbot itself,
though. I think it's a fairly valid use-case.
