My idea is to require explicit configuration of agents into groups,
and then linked that to a build environment. And then for future
enhancement,  add the capability based feature.  To make it simple,
capability based feature will be defined on per agent basis.  So if a
project group-A doesn't define a build agent group then  it will just
use the capabality-based criteria in choosing the agent,  otherwise it
will try to filter the agent by it's build agent group and capability
based criteria.
