It seems a bit ugly to be selectively including and excluding parts of the 'tools' directory.

This idea suggests to me that 'tools/' is not the right place for the buildbot config. Perhaps they should go in a higher-level directory. Even outside the trunk/branches/tags directories, since the complete set of buildbot configs should not be specific to one branch of the source code but rather should be a single set of configurations that handle all currently interesting trunks/tags/branches.

(The same argument may apply to any scripts we have for building / releasing / packaging / testing / signing, that are used for multiple branches.)
