pkgsrc packaging of base?

Maybe its a little early in the life of DF pkgsrc to think of this,
but has anyone considering hooking up the kernel/userland build
process so that the kernel and userland binaries are under the binary
package control of the pkgsrc pkg_* utilities?

I'm not sure quite how this would work and what the size of the
packages would be?  would /bin/* be in a bin-x.x.x package or /bin/ls
be ls-x.x.x?

The latter (lots of little packages) would allow easier updating of
the system, since you would only have to install ls-x.x.1 to fix the
bug in ls-x.x.0, but you would probably end up with too many packages.
 Alternatively you could use a binary patch on the bin-x.x.x package.

Something which was as powerful (or more powerful) than the Debian
binary packages would be highly cool.

Cheers Steve
