[devel at bb.net] buildbot worker in c

I would not recommend it!  The current protocol is based on Perspective
Broker, which is pretty Python-related as it involves seralization of
Python objects.  However, Buildbot has an abstraction over its protocols,
and there is room to add a different, more language-agnostic protocol.  In
fact, there was a good bit of work to develop one based on AMP.

As for language, I'd recommend Rust or Golang over C for this sort of
thing.  Safety is going to be pretty important.
