We should find a way to make sure people creating large configurations can find this particular technique. dabrahams suggests cloning it to buildbot/bbproto and pointing to it from the docs, which seems reasonable.

…but I'd hate for that to be viewed as a substitute for support built into BuildBot itself ;-).

Actually, don't point to that, at least not yet. Removing modules from sys.modules is not a reliable way to force them to be re-loaded.

OK, now you can point ;-)
