[users at bb.net] Need a Python 3 enabled builder for buildbot.test

Hi Craig,
You are part of the buildbot team now. You could have added that test
yourself. The nine.buildbot.net CI is configured via the .bbtravis.yml file.

Until now, we didn't have a clear status of what passes, and what does not

So it is not realistic to ask people to try python3 as well unless we have
a clear PASS/FAIL status of whether there is a regression or not.
We can't just stare at the results of bwverbose and figure out manually if
the failing tests are new of not.

I created this script in order to get that status automatically.

I hope this will help us to be more efficient at not introducing py3
You will need to re-run the script from time to time to update the while
list. Maybe not for each of your small PRs, as this might introduce
unnecessary merge conflicts.
