Thanks for the replies.

I thought the Live CD was a bad idea until I realised it can still be booted under QEMU for non x86 users (Live CDs can be created for other platforms - have to pick one otherwise it'd be a nightmare). The tradeoff would be speed for x86 users vs ease of image maintenance and build environment precision (host processor). There is an appealing match between the desired uniformity of build environment and QEMU's aim to uniformly emulate different platforms regardless of host. It could also be a good test of QEMU itself in the same way GCC self compiles.

Cross compile to Windows from Linux is an unknown quantity to me - has anyone tried it yet with QEMU?

Depending on how it's used this could either be a two edged sword or a virtuous circle - headlines of "Convenient Build Environment demands massive investment of time to keep functional" or "Convenient Build Environment helps find QEMU inconsistencies and vice versa". Something like that.
