I wouldn't worry about that. If the checkin message indicates that
this is testing out a certain buildbot issue, most python-checkin
readers probably will skip over it quickly.

If you are still worried: buildbot has a "try" feature, where developers
can try out changes on the slaves before committing them. This isn't
currently activated in the Python buildbot - but if you need it, we
could look into it (if you are curious, just experiment with it
yourself).
