> We should certainly fix the bugs in the scripts if possible, but we should also make sure the buildbot can recover no matter what state we're in.  This is what the task_kill step tries to do (clean up stray processes).  This doesn't work for python processes because if we kill all python processes, we take down the buildbot process.  The chromium win bots try to work around this by having a separate binary called python_slave.exe (I think it's just a copy of python.exe) and running the buildbot slave with that binary.  Then it's safe to taskkill /f /im python.exe on the waterfall.

That sounds like a great idea. But I wonder if we can achieve the same effect by using perl, ruby, or some other scripting language.
