Ah, right, I can have multiple builders per slave. That's good.

For the case of x86 and AMD64, a single slave can indeed accommodate
both platforms.

Most likely, there would be different batch files to run, although using
environment variables might also work. So I guess I could use the same
slave for both builders.

Ah, ok.
