Err, about those cacherevs...
The backbuilder doesn't take advantage of descendant cacherevs. And when building patch-30, it will ignore a cacherev at patch-20 if there's a revlib at patch-10 or patch-50.

The basics are there, though. It wouldn't be hard to add. There are other things, like backbuilding from a descendant in another branch, and building from a sibling, and pipelining scans/patch-gets, and. . .

Once, I even thought of building address@hidden/tla--devo--1.1--patch-198 from the cacherev in address@hidden/tla--integration--1.1--base-0. But for security reasons, that doesn't look possible.
