Seeing as no-one else has piped up yet... :)

The main problem with using a loopback fs is that we'd then need to require 
kernel support for it.

The main problem with using a tar file and rsyncing that is that we have to 
tar/untar the whole portage tree each time. That takes a while (and quite a 
lot of space) :/
