This sounds very very nice in my ears. I have a few questions though.
Will this work be done on Gentoo or are you planning to use portage
An interesting thought here would be to have some variable set in
make.conf that if set only lets you install packages from a list of
trusted apps/version. This would be a very flexible solution. Since it
lets you have the exact same operating system on your workstation/server
while having a really secure setup on your server.

Let us know if you have any problems.
Otherwise the only thing I have to say, welcome to the Gentoo community!
