I think such a system or even just some sort of reproducible tinderbox
setup (in order to start with something simpler) would be great to try
running on the Supercell setup  at the OSL like I mentioned awhile
back  on the dev list.
If people are interested I can try to get the ball rolling and see if
Gentoo can get access to some of the hardware now that most of the
infrastructure is in place.
