I appear to have been able to get things going with Buildbot with the 
virtualenv instructions, although I am not convinced that you can really 
activate the virtualenv in a buildstep. I didn't try this and instead 
resorted to a bit of trickery through which python binary was used after 
virtualenv creation.

To be fair, there is no specific need to use virtualenv, as long as you 
have a fresh environment each time. My attempts so far have not been 
with throwaway VMs. Of course, I am sure that there will be other ways 
to isolate a python environment.
