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.
