[devel at bb.net] nine.buildbot.net have 0.8 worker?

Hi guess that what we need is end to end tests rather than dog fooding.
Python.org nine bot will be python3, which adds another variable.
nine.bb.net is python2. nine.bb.net is buildbot travis, and may not use all
the features of buildbot.

There is a matrix of:
master py3  | master py2
worker py3  | worker py2  | slave py2 (with pre-py3 twisted)

Then the e2e tests shall test all remote commands existing (as there might
be some bytes/unicode compat issues everywhere)

I am not even sure if it is feasible to support (python3 + tw17pb) ->
python2 + tw 12 pb.
I mean they are some fixes needed in twisted in order to make pb work
across python version.
So if it is needed to upgrade twisted, then why not also upgrade to
buildbot-worker (and move the worker to py3)
