Me. Does it have to be a configure option? It is difficult to invoke
different commands in different branches; better if the configures in
all branches get the same options. Of course, the configure command
doesn't have to be "configure"; any other script available in all
branches would work (there is already Tools/buildbot for such scripts).

I've removed all slaves that were down and where the owners either
didn't respond, or indicated that they can't bring the slaves up anytime
