Butler: Max Number Board Buttons per Board: 20, How to increase? Edited

Trello Butler is currently limited to 20 buttons on a board.

Our Requirements
We are currently using 22 buttons that move cards to their 22 backlog boards.
Moreover we use buttons that move cards into the correct list inside one backlog board, plus a few due date butlers. This gives a total of 35-40 board buttons needed per board.

Workaround for now: Activate different butlers/buttons per user.

Question:
How can increase this number over 20?

@George_Dorgan Well, I can think of how to get rid of the requirement to add 22 different backlog board buttons:

Create one button for each type of list in the backlog board called "Move to Backlog LISTNAME" and when clicked, find a checklist on a template card called "Backlog Boards LISTNAME" and copy it to the card, this should have a list of all your current boards.

Then add a rule that says

When a checklist item is checked in checklist "Backlog Boards {*}" move the card to list "{wildcard1}" on board "{checklistitemname}"

Thanks Iain, This seems to be a very advanced and flexible approach. 
However I am not familiar with Template Cards. Could you please elaborate and give examples with

  1. A Windows Backlog Board that contains tasks related to Windows
  2. A Trello Backlog Board that contains tasks related to Trello organisation.

    Questions:
    Why must it be a template card?
    Why wildcard?
    How can a template card contain a list of all boards?

@George_Dorgan I'll leave the specifics as an exercise for the reader (or for someone else who wants to have a crack) but to answer your questions:

Why must it be a template card?

It doesn't need to be a template card, just a card that you use as a template

Why wildcard?

Because you said you need to move cards to specific lists, not always the same list

> How can a template card contain a list of all boards?

It doesn't look like Butler can create boards anymore, so you would either need to maintain this manually, or you could use a Trellinator command something like this to create a board whenever a checklist item was added to a checklist called "List of Boards":
