OTOH, if someone is willing to maintain psycopg and run a buildbot slave 
for it, we could easily add it to our buildbot master so that every time 
a change was made to the core the psycopg tests would be run and the 
maintainer would be alerted to any failures.  I suspect this pattern 
will be more common in the "smaller core/more add-ons" future.

PS: It's interesting to note that the Python project is doing something 
similar now (http://www.python.org/dev/buildbot/community/), and when we 
get Zope 3 on Python 2.5 I intend to set up a slave to test Z3 every 
time a checkin is made to Python.
