automated build boxes + better tools for marking packages stable.  a command 
line interface that let's you view pending stable requests in a condensed 
format and quickly approve from right there (which would post a comment and 
mark the respective ebuild stable for you).

a significant chunk of time wasted on keeping packages keyworded stable is the 
bugzilla interface and actually going into the cvs tree to make the stable 
change and commit it.
