Would tinderbox help?

Good thinking!

The chroot idea is a good one because the process lends itself to 
parallelism. That is, you might have one test box/chroot for, (maybe in 
order of importance)

- unstable empty tree (all deps every time)
- stable empty tree builds (same)
- unstable cumulative tree builds
- stable cumulative tree builds

I see the last ones as being fairly important, because the cumulative 
(emerge -Du) trees will have the best throughput, for quicky finding any 
glaring, slap-forehead kind of bugs/bad keywords (i.e. low fruit).

The cumulative tree machines would also be an efficient choice for your 
reverse-dependency idea (perhaps to only one level of indirection).
