Hmmm. It could try to cache the kernel images. It just would have to
remember the configurations. Ok 1000 400kb images isn't that nice, but it
should probably be ok.
This way, thw first two weeks the box would be grinding to a halt
recompiling the images, but afterwards, it should be ok.

Additionally, one could even make it recompile the known configurations
after a kernel upgrade automatically.

And the stuff probably would need to be niced, plus a queue only mode when
the loadavg is over a cutoff point.
