I hesitate to suggest this (because it sounds like more work when we
don't have enough volunteer's as-is), but how about if each branch had
its tests run each time there was a commit made to it.

That way we don't have to worry about mixing up changes in a single
"test" branch and we'd also be able to tell -- by looking at the
buildbot output for a particular branch -- if a branch that was being
considered for merging to the trunk is actually passing on all platforms
(OS and Python versions).

I imagine that functionality would also be helpful to people developing
on a branch.  They could know if their changes cause tests to fail on
platforms they might not have access to.
