Clarify Description of Build Agent Attributes

                 Key: CONTINUUM-2380
             Project: Continuum
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Distributed Builds, Documentation
    Affects Versions: 1.3.4
            Reporter: George Snyder says:

  "Note that all of your agents need to be identical, as there is no way to
  control which agent Continuum chooses.."

This paragraph needs to be rewritten in the context of Build Agent Groups.  Presumably, all
the agents within a group must be identical.  Or do they just need to be consistent?  For
example, if all are using JDK 1.6.0_11, is it OK for them to specify different locations in
'continuum-buildagent.xml' (e.g. /usr/jdk/1.6.0_11 on one, /usr/java/1.6.0_11 on another,
and so on)?

Also, please clarify the effects of a Build Environment's Installations on a distributed Build
Agent.  Are the Installation values passed to the Build Agent?  If so, do they override values
in the agent's 'continuum-buildagent.xml', or vice versa?
