Local Ebuild Testing

Ensuring ebuilds are working before committing them is a mostly personal process. A utility that allows one to quickly (one command) run a battery of installation and optionally runtime testing against an ebuild would streamline this process significantly. The basic requirements are the same as any other test runner: isolated and repeatable. This work can scope out or in as needed to fit within time constraints.
