Ok, will do.  Its great to have buildbot running nightly builds, so that
will just be cake.  Let me finish the Pd-extended release and the
pure-data 0.43 release...

Yeah, I think it makes sense to have Pd-extended and pure-data.git
builds separate from all of the libraries. I don't know enough about
buildbot to say how best it should be done.
