The security problem is _you_.

What if you patch gcc to inject a virus, backdoor, whatever malign code you 
can think of?

Get me right, I'm sure you're a nice guy but what you are proposing, though 
very nice, will never be used by anyone with a half working brain.

Still the system you are describing can be usefulll if you have a community of 
trusted providers that you can gurantee. This is the system we are planning 
to use in our little group. We all use gentoo and doe that stuff want to 
compile often! multiplying the cpus by four would be great.

Cheers, Nadim.
