As we discussed on IRC, it's somewhat oposite: "try scheduler" functionality
should be an interface between Web UI and a ForceScheduler from the user point
of view.  From the administrator point of view, it might look just a
ForceScheduler with extra parameters.

And, as it was noted on IRC, this particular feature means that instead of a
patch for a known-to-the-master repository, the end user could specify a remote
location for the change to build.
