Looks neat - might be useful in devtools on its own.

Hmm probably not. I was thinking something like:
$ omg-rebuilds /path/to/svn/checkout /path/to/chroot/dir -- readline
bash foo bar baz

Or something to that effect, that would not only build all packages in
a chroot, but auto-bump the pkgrels and dump the correct results to
your svn dir, for a later run of testingpkg...
