Trim the Beard

=== Using a BINHOST ===
If we want to make things easier in the sense of providing users a package without making them compile it fully, we could provide our own binaries, Sabayon style, but maintaining as much subarch and profile optimization as possible. That's a lot of USE flag combos, but by whittling the package count down (and other build optimization, e.g. optimal cacheing), we could provide binaries for a wide variety of subarches with a reasonable amount of expensive cpu work and electricity.
=== Optimizing Dependency Graph Analysis ===
One of the things that I liked about equo on Sabayon was it's (much quicker) dependency calculations, especially on slow hardware. Can trimming the beard help speed this up in Portage? This would help greatly for updating SBCs automatically.
