Would tinderbox help?

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).
