I might throw some time and equipment at it if I knew I wasn't 
re-inventing square wheels (or even round ones for that matter).  And I 
suspect that others smarter than I am would do the same and maybe even 
improve the approach by coming up with ways to predict the build 
environment needed to reproduce a given binary to reduce the 
trial-and-error time.  But I don't see this happening if the process 
stays closed any more than I think there would be a useful Linux today - 
or most of the packages comprising Red Hat's product - if development 
had not been open and shared.
