should have a way of running Python code provided by the master on a slave

Right now, ShellCommand? is generally the easiest way to do $CustomTask? on a slave. Using ShellCommand? is often dirty and hard to make cross-platform. Unfortunately, it is difficult to write python code to be run on a slave since it requires upgrading the Buildbot installation there - and a new SlaveCommand?. I think it'd be great if we had something like ShellCommand? -- but that executed Python code. I envision that the master-side BuildStep? would require a function with a defined API and possibly some other information. I'm not exactly sure how this would work on the slave side yet.
