[users at bb.net] Store triggered build as a property in the triggering build

I use a local worker which its only job is to coordinate the triggers and the triggered builds and wait for all of that to finish.
Nothing is actually built on the local builders, so, having them wait is not an issue and it never occupies an actual worker.

Makes any sense for your use case?
