I like this idea, for a variety of reasons :)

But, before that can ever happen, we need two big things to be solved:

 1) Build system speed

      Factory.  The build system speed sucks.  Badly.  Now I know we are

yes, we need to become faster. We have multiple ideas atm how to approach
it, we just need some time for it ...

Nice, any pointers to where these ideas are?

No, we do not record lunch conversations :)

What we work on:
 - prebuilt images to speed up the initial package installation
  (also for smaller jobs)

It would be great if there was a way to define these on a per-repo
basis. Essentially an "make an image with these packages, and all
their dependencies". For repos like devel:languages:python and
devel:languages perl, where pretty much every package depends on their
respective language interpreters, or something like KDE:Distro:Factory
where pretty much all packages depend on the Qt libraries, this could
be very useful.
