Why not just have an email based kernel server? This is the least CPU
intensive option and allows you to filter requests for kernels in a
nicer way than running a web server could do.

You could request a kernel with a list of options in the email, process
this request, look for a precompiled kernel, if found, send it to user,
if not, queue it for compilation.

It's a nice idea, but best done on a bloody big bastard number cruncher
like the machine that someone recently mentioned that could compile a
kernel in _45_ seconds!
