Beware that for the server part of buildbot, it doesn't work on Windows,

Maybe this has changed but that's the last status I know of.

But I definitely want to run the slaves on Win32.

This would require the buildout to make the distinction between a
slave machine and a
machine that has a salve and a master. It' not the case right now but
I can change it,
by adding a 'only_slave.cfg' file
