Given how easy Antoine (I think) made it for us to create server side
clones on hg.python.org, making a new clone, pushing a change to it
over ssh, then triggering a build, would be almost as nice, but with
the security of requiring registered public SSH keys on the server.

I did just poke around on the buildbot pages, but couldn't find
anything resembling the old "buiild a branch" form.

MvL/Antoine/Georg, any ideas?
