It should be trivial except for the initial checkout of the Python code base.

The slave opens a socket connection to the master, so you must be able
to reach the python.org box _from_ the slave.  I don't expect you'll
have serious problems if you can do that much.  For example, my home
box has a dynamic IP (assigned by my ISP to my router), my router
gives a different dynamic IP to my box (NAT'ed), and I'm running
behind both software and hardware (SPI) firewalls.  Because my box
initiated the connection, nothing in the chain objects.
