You can now interact with your build jobs in some ways which require 
authentication using 'ssh jobs'.

Currently, available sub-commands are:

cancel (request termination of an unwanted build job)

deploy (get a job to deploy (if it's suitable: i.e. successfully built, 
from master, etc.) (e.g. if you forgot to set the deploy option before hand)

rebuild (rebuild a job if it failed due to some transient condition, or 
optionally with different token options)

I've updated the brief documentation at [1] to mention this.
