I've finally got jenkins building working when clicking "Build Now".
w00t. Thanks to bstinson for finding one of the issues. I'll write
this up, but before I do that, I've got three open issues:

1) IRC notification doesn't work on post-build -- It's not even clear
where you set the server, only the channel name field is visible
2) Email notification didn't work.

3) Most importantly: triggering the builds: best I can come up with is
putting a git post-update hook in my local repo, and `wget` the
special: "Trigger builds remotely (e.g., from scripts)" url when I
want to run it. This actually works, but it requires you to actually
already be logged in to jenkins, and I wasn't sure how to dump in my
username and password into a wget command.

No I don't want to screenscrape, phantomjs, or wget with my firefox
session cookies! I also don't want to "poll scm" because that's
