I have the same issue and I recall Lieven said that it can in fact be
done. He'd need to provide the details. I think your Buildbot just
needs to run when it wants to (can poll for changes of course) and
then it can send the results to the master.

I have machines that can be used as well and would also need this
feature. I tried setting this up in the run-up to 1.5 and could not
get Buildbot installed on RHEL. Just ran out of time and forgot about
it, but can take it up again.
